Kitwe Council dissolves Kitwe United executive

Sports Kitwe Council dissolves Kitwe United executive

Kitwe City Council has dissolved the executive committee of FAZ Division One North side Kitwe United following the team’s disastrous performance in 2015.

Kitwe finished eleventh in Division One North with 45 points from 34 matches played.

Presenting a supplementary report to the ordinary full council meeting held in the council chamber on Wednesday, Kitwe Town Clerk Bornwell Luanga said the local authority was disappointed with United’s performance.

“The team has been provided with a new bus, players are paid their training, upkeep and winning allowances on time. However, this effort by the sponsors is not matched by the performance of the team,” he said.

Luanga said council spent K1, 078, 151 on United last season in comparison with the K400 000 that Mufulira Council spent on Blackpool but the latter managed to win promotion to the Super Division.

“Our investigations have revealed that the major problem is not the team but the members of the executive committee who have caused divided loyalties from players and hence lack of cohesion in the team,” he said.

Meanwhile, council management has ushered in an interim executive committee to oversee the affairs of the club.

Gabriel Akayombokwa has retained his position as chairperson while the other members of the interim committee include; Emmanuel Numwa, Samuel Mumba, Sombo Kaela and Reuben Simfukwe.
