NGEZI Platinum have settled for Amanda Nyazero as their new chief executive to fill the void which was left by Yvonne Manwa, who was hired by ZIFA in the same capacity.

The Mhondoro side became the first Mashonaland West team to win the Castle Lager Premiership when they came from behind to upset Simba Bhora 2-1 last weekend. 

This appointment was confirmed by the team’s media liaison officer, Roberta Katunga through a press statement. 

This means, Nyazero will not miss all the fun despite arriving a bit late as the coronation is set to take place this coming Saturday. 

Takesure Chiragwi’s men are hosting relegated Cranborne Bullets with both teams playing to fulfil the fixture.

The army side realised their fate last weekend when they played out to a goalless draw against Manica Diamonds. 

They will be battling for a quick top-flight league return next season in the ZIFA Northern Region Division One Soccer League. 

One of her priorities will probably be to establish a Women’s team that will help them to meet some of the CAF requirements which will enable their team to participate in the continent’s champions league. 

“Ngezi Platinum Stars Football Club is pleased to announce the appointment of Amanda Nyazero as the Club’s new Chief Executive Officer.

“Nyazero takes over from Yvonne Manwa Mapika, who left the Club in October.

“She who holds a Bachelor of Accountancy (Hons) Degree from the University of Zimbabwe and is in her final year pursuing a PhD in Governance, boasts of a wealth of both financial and administrative experience having served as an executive accountant at the Graca Machel Trust for seven years. 

“Her good financial acumen which not only echoes the Club’s sustainable growth ambitions is important for sound administration, while her experience on inclusivity and empowerment aligns with Ngezi Platinum’s vision of building a strong brand with strong grassroots development.

“The Board, Executives and all the Supporters of Madamburo are excited to welcome Amanda on board and wish her well as she embarks on her new role of leading the Club’s critical strategic function. 

“Nyazero will be key in heading the Club’s secretariat, upholding the Club culture, developing strategies and ensuring a holistic and sustainable development of the Club as we seek to establish an institution that will outlive all of us, and as we transcend to the next level of football administration,” reads Katunga’s press statement.
