Sakunda Holdings has proposed a mediation process aimed at resolving a long-standing impasse between two camps fighting for control of Dynamos Football Club.
Sakunda Holdings’ legal representatives, Chimuka Mafunga Attorneys have since written to the two Dynamos camps proposing a mediation process.
ZBC News reports that letters that are addressed to Marriot and Kamba and dated 24 June 2022 state that mediation is aimed at ensuring a quick and final resolution to the deadlock.
Sakunda proposed that the mediation be led by Advocate Thembinkosi Magwaliba of Advocate Chambers and any retired judges appointed by arbitral institutions such as Africa Institute of Mediation and Arbitration, Alternative Dispute Solutions Centre and Harare Commercial Arbitration Centre.
The two parties in the Dynamos dispute have also been advised to consult their professional advisors for guidance and representation in the whole process.
The fight for control of Dynamos escalated when a new board of former players led by Ernest Kamba was appointed last year in a move rejected by the club’s long-serving chairperson, Marriot.
According to Sakunda Holdings, its efforts to engage the two camps from September last year to this June have not yielded any positive results.
Already, the fuel company has threatened to withdraw sponsorship over the deadlock.
