Minister pledges to help Highlanders



Highlanders are one of the oldest clubs in Zimbabwe, with claims to being the oldest, but in the past few years they have struggled financially.

The side, based in Bulawayo, reportedly has debts nearing US$400 000 but one man has promised to step in and do what he can to help.

The Minister of Mines and Mining Development Obert Mpofu has expressed his desire to see the outfit challenge for honours rather than slip into obscurity.

Speaking at the weekend memorial and burial of Adam Ndlovu, a Highlanders legend, Mpofu pledged to help the team where he can.

“This is our heritage here in Bulawayo,” Mpofu said. “It is a big institution that we can’t allow to collapse and that’s why I am willing to help. We have to help the team reclaim it’s glory days by supporting it financially. It is our duty to do that.”

Mpofu then paid tribute to Ndlovu, who tragically lost his life in a car crash.

“As for the late Adam we honour him and will always remember him for his great job for both Highlanders and Warriors and more recently for his great job as Chicken Inn coach,” Mpofu concluded.
