Fire Coventry And Elevate Machakaire, Mliswa Tells ED

Fire Coventry And Elevate Machakaire, Mliswa Tells ED

Former Dynamos fitness trainer and current Norton MP, Temba Mliswa (Independent), said that President Emmerson Mnangagwa should fire the Minister of Youth, Sport, Arts and Recreation, Kirsty Coventry, and replace her with her deputy Tino Machakaire.

The outspoken former ZANU Mashonaland West chairman said Coventry has failed to promote the development of sports in the country since she was appointed minister in 2018 and should therefore be relieved of her duties.

The decline of football, arguably Zimbabwe’s most-supported sport, bears testimony to the degeneration and decay of sport in the country.

Most of Zimbabwe’s stadiums have become an eyesore, with Rufaro Stadium in Mbare, in a state of disrepair.

Added to that, the Confederation of African Football (CAF) has banned all local stadiums from hosting international matches.

Mliswa warned President Emmerson Mnangagwa that his desire to be more inclusive (Coventry is a young white female), will backfire. He posted on Twitter:

President ED has tried to be inclusive but those who have failed to perform should be removed. In politics, you can’t be nice to the detriment of your own power.

Any sports leader should be able to consult those in the know about certain sports & I have vast knowledge in rugby such that anyone who wants to be successful in that area needs to consult me. I have produced some great players such as Tonderai Chivhanga.

It’s not that I want anything, no. I just want to see us being succeeding. However, we have arrogant administrators who have elite backgrounds & feel they know it all.

Yet they can’t connect with areas such as Mbare, Highfields, rural areas etc so how do you expect sport to grow?

It’s better that the Ministry be reshuffled and Tino Machakaire is made the Minister. Kirsty has only used the position to get herself an IOC seat which isn’t beneficial to the country.

MAY START BY TELLING CAMARADA MLISWA THAT I HAVE FULL RESPECT OF HIM AND HIS VIEWS.

BUT I HUMBLY BEG TO DIFFER WITH YOU WHERE YOU SUGGEST THAT MINISTER KIRSTY COVENTRY MUST BE FIRED. FIRSTLY CAMARADA TEMBA, KIRSTY COVENTRY DOES NOT WORK IN A VACUUM. SHE SITS IN A CABINET MEETING WHERE MOST OF THE THINGS SHE IMPLEMENTS ARE DISCUSSED. SHE IMPLEMENTS CABINET DECISIONS.

SECONDLY,YOU APPORTION THE DELAPIDATION OF FOOTBALL INFRASTRUCTURES TO KIRSTY COVENTRY'S POOR PERFORMANCE. MAY I REMIND CAMARADA MLISWA THAT FOOTBALL GROUNDS AMMENITIES ARE RESPONSIBILITY OF MUNICIPALITIES WHICH FALL UNDER LOCAL GOVERNMENT WHICH IS MINISTERED BY MINISTER MOYO.

AS FAR AS FOOTBALL IS CONCERNED, SRC HAS TAKEN STEPS TO CORRECT THE ANOMALIES BY SUSPENDING THE CURRENT ZIFA BOARD TO RESTRUCTURE FOOTBALL. SRC FALLS UNDER MINISTER KIRSTY COVENTRY'S MINISTRY. THERE IS NO WAY THAT SRC COULD HAVE TAKEN THAT MOVE WITHOUT HER INPUT.

IT SEEMS AS IF MP FOR NORTON, CAMARADA TEMBA MLISWA, IS FAST JOINING TWO BLABBERMOUTHS IN THE PRESIDENT'S OFFICE. STOP IT.

MINISTER KIRSTY COVENTRY IS "AMAFIKEZOLO" IN SPORTS ADMINISTRATION IN THIS COUNTRY. OUR PROBLEMS ARE ROOTED IN FAILURE TO APPOINT FORMER SPORTSPERSONS TO RUN OUR SPORTS. WE ALLOW SPORTS SUPPORTERS TO RUN OUR SPORTS SIDELING THE LIKES OF PETER NDLOVU, BENJANI MWARUWARI, SUNDAYS CHIDZAMBWA ETC.

OUR GOVERNMENT MUST TAKE RESPONSIBILITY OF PAYING SALARIES OF
ALL NATIONAL TEAMS OF ALL SPORTS. BY DOING THAT WE ATTRACT COACHES FROM TOP LEAGUES IN THE WORLD.

LET ME ASSURE YOU OF ONE THING. PRESIDENT ED MNANGAGWA IS A LISTENING PRESIDENT, BUT DOES NOT ACCEPT EVERY HOGWASH.

{ BY THE WAY CAMARADA MLISWA, HOW ARE YOUR FARMING OPERATIONS GOING ON AT SPRING FARM ? I HEAR THAT YOU HAVE MANY CATTLE AND THAT YOU PRODUCE LOTS OF MAIZE AND TOBACCO. MY INTEREST IN SPRING FARM IS THAT I WAS BORN THERE 72 YEARS AGO. PLEASE NEVER ALLOW THAT FARM TO GO TO THE DOGS }.

YOURS SINCERELY
