HIGHLANDERS Football Club will today conduct interviews for the post of chief executive officer which falls vacant today when the incumbent Ronald Moyo’s term expires.

Moyo opted not to renew his contract.

Five people have been shortlisted from the 24 who applied for the position.

Highlanders executive secretary Morgen Dube confirmed to Sunday News Sport that the interviews will be conducted today.

“Yes we are conducting interviews to find the best suitable candidate to fill the chief executive officer position tomorrow (today). We got 24 applications and we have shortlisted five candidates. Unfortunately, I cannot divulge the names in order to respect the rights of the candidates,” said Dube.

Moyo replaced former club committee member and secretary-general, Nhlanhla Dube three years ago.

When replacing Dube, sources at Highlanders at the time, said Moyo emerged as the best candidate for the job among nine people that were gunning for the post as he had a better appreciation of the club operations and culture.

Moyo prior to his appointment was the club’s public relations and media officer and boasted of football administration experience as he had a stint at Bantu Rovers.

Those who had been interviewed for the job included ex-Bosso defender Sikhumbuzo Ndebele, former Ingwebu marketing and sales manager Prosper Ncube, Pilate Mahlangu, Nkululeko Ndlovu, Tongai Dodo, Nqobile Ngulube, Francis Mpofu and Raymond Gonte.

Impeccable sources last night said marketing executive and culture promoter Sihlangu Dlodlo who has worked for some blue chip companies and academic at Lupane State University Economics lecturer Bukhosi Mpofu are among candidates set to be interviewed this morning.

Expectations are high that the club will land the right person who will grow the brand and business which has been stagnant for years despite a big appeal to fans and corporate sector.

Meanwhile, Moyo is set to assume a new position as the general manager of Fair Talk Communications, a media group entity.

Efforts to get a comment from the board chairman Zwelibanzi Ndlovu were scuffled by the fact that he said he was at church and could not talk by the time of going to print.

Board vice-chair Qhubani Moyo although he referred Sunday News Sport to Ndlovu he, however, confirmed that Moyo will be joining Fairtalk Communications soon.

“The board chairperson is around and is the responsible person to comment and give you details. However, I can confirm that we have engaged Ronald Moyo and he has agreed to join us as the general manager,” said Moyo.
