Benjani Set To Be Reappointed Warriors Assistant Coach

Benjani Set To Be Reappointed Warriors Assistant Coach

Former Warriors assistant coach Benjani Mwaruwari is reportedly set to be drafted into the national team set-up again ahead of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) finals.

Zimbabwe currently has no technical team to lead the Warriors after Norman Mapeza’s contract as interim coach expired at the end of the 2022 World Cup qualifiers last month.

Mwaruwari was appointed as an assistant coach to former Warriors gaffer Zdravko Logarusic in September in a bid to salvage Zimbabwe’s World Cup qualifying campaign.

He however lost his job after two games when the ZIFA board fired the entire Warriors technical team including co-assistants Tonderai Ndiraya and Lloyd Chitembwe.

The Herald reported a source as saying Mwaruwari will be returning as one of the assistant coaches to whoever is offered the job to take the Warriors to Cameroon. Said the source:

The issue of the coach is yet to be finalised. Of course, engagements have been going on and hopefully, by the end of this week, we should know which direction things are taking.

But what is likely to be certain is that Benjani Mwaruwari will be returning as one of the assistant coaches.

In fact, the idea was to give Mapeza a contract after the World Cup qualifiers and then allow him to choose his assistants.

This time he was supposed to have three assistants, including Benjani because there was a general feeling that he did not have enough time to make his contributions.

So, whoever is coming as a coach, even if the plans to re-engage Mapeza fail, should include Benjani in the set-up.

His experience is needed and his influence is critical, especially when going to such a tournament as the AFCON finals.

Mwaruwari (43), a former Warriors captain sat on the Warriors bench for two matches against South Africa and Ethiopia before the upheaval. He was on the job for just 18 days.

Mapanzure gvt high school in mvg could not finish mathematics exam due lack of stationary.The was no graph papers and the pupils left the questions unanswered because of limited graph papers.Some of the students are talking of reporting to zimsec in Masvingo town.This is because the administration is corrupt and they eat exam fees and could not buy the stationary.Basure the siniour teacher and the gvt high school told the pupils that Zimsec was supposed to provide the stationary not the school which is incorrect.Mapakomhere high school nearby had enough graph papers for the exam about 4 graph papers each which is correct. Chauraya head of Mapanzure gvt high school is said to be tyrant and running currupt administration.Everyday he goes to town Masvingo using school resources but he could not buy the stationary for the poor pupils.Chiweshe the deputy head of Mapanzure high School is believed to the who was in charge of the paper 2 mathematics.I think Pindula news and the Anty corruption council of Zimbabwe should visit the school to investigate the issue because most of the stack holders and community are complaining of the currupt adminstration of Mapanzure high school. Head's office is in the school car and most of his teachers are subotaging the head.The ACCZ should visit the school and community to investigate this mathematics exams because the future of the students is in danger.Can you guys help to reach Pindula news so I could give the news in full
