HERBERT Maruwa is alleged to have forced three players – Issah Sadiki, Ely Ilunga and Taimon Mvula – to use juju for four months despite their protests.
He is also being accused of extorting money from his backroom staff, who paid either US$15 or US$30, for sangomas who could boost “the fortunes of the team.”
This is contained in the full charges, which the Dynamos leaders have preferred, against their suspended coach.
Maruwa will appear before a Dynamos disciplinary hearing on Friday next week.
Murape Murape and Richard Chihoro will face the same disciplinary committee on Monday.
The hearings will be held at the club’s offices at the National Sports Stadium.
Below are Maruwa’s charges in full:
Failure to meet set target of collecting 15 points out of five league games after the technical review meeting of 4th August 2023. You went on to draw nil all against Hwange FC at Barbourfields Stadium in Bulawayo on 6th August 2023.
The drawn match meant that you were not going to meet the 15 points target as set by the Club.
Further the mid-season review pointed out that the team lacked consistency and at the discretion of the Club as contained in your employment contract CLAUSE (c) under PERFORMANCE TARGET, as read with Clause 7.3 of the same employment contract.
Extorting money from members of the Dynamos Football Club Technical Team, allegedly to enhance the fortunes of the team during games between July and August 2023.
It is alleged that you forced members of the technical team to pay amounts of money to you which money you took away alleging it was meant for payment to enhance the team’s fortunes.
You would force each member to pay you soon after the game, US$15 and US$30 per game, drawn and won respectively.
Gross misconduct by forcing some players to use juju during matches of the club before and during matches between April and August 2023.
You forced players like Issah Sadiki, Ely Ilunga and Taimon Mvula to use juju during the period in question.
Bringing the club, sponsors and other stakeholders into disrepute by having your letter to the club, of 10th August 2023, wherein you falsely claimed that you had not entered into a mutual separation with the club published through social media platforms and the print and electronic media.
The prominence given to your false communication portrayed the club in a bad light.
