THE Highlanders mid-season extraordinary general meeting is set to be held at the Bulawayo football giants’ clubhouse on Sunday, with the meeting expected to tackle the club’s constitutional review, which has been a thorny issue in the past meetings.

With elections due next year for the chairman, secretary-general and committee members’ posts, the constitutional review debate is likely to take centre stage, with some former members of the executive committee said to be seeking to contest in the upcoming elections.
Highlanders chief executive officer, Nhlanhla Dube yesterday confirmed the Sunday meeting.
“The club’s mid-season extraordinary meeting will be held on Sunday at the clubhouse,” he said.
Chairman of the constitutional review committee, Elkanah Dube, who is also a club board member, is expected to set the ball rolling on the constitutional changes, while acting chairman, Modern Ngwenya is also expected to present the progress report.
Highlanders have been acting without a substantive chairman since November last year after Peter Dube was suspended by Zifa for what the football governing body said was inappropriate conduct during the Zifa congress on October 29.
Ngwenya will be expected to shed light on the issue of the suspended assistant coaches, Amini Soma-Phiri and Cosmas Zulu, who appeared before a disciplinary committee last Thursday, and to explain the signing of foreign players, who have not seen much of game time since the start of the season.
He was elevated to the acting chairman capacity after Dube’s suspension.
