Tanzania: Simba Heads Meet to Clear Allegations

Dodoma — SIMBA Chairman Ismail Aden Rage has summoned the Executive Committee of the club tomorrow in a meeting expected to come out with tough decisions on the fate of the club.

Rage told the 'Daily News' here yesterday that the meeting is aimed at clearing air over various allegations levelled against the club. "I have summoned the executive committee on Thursday (tomorrow).

In the meeting we are expecting to come up with tough decisions to clear air on the ongoing allegations of disputes in the clubs," he said.

Rage said that in actual sense the club was not in a dispute, adding that the ongoing rumours were being spearheaded by some members because of their greediness to get hold of club's properties and use them for self benefits.

He added that he also planned to meet leaders of all branches in Dar es Salaam Region on Sunday and that if a need arise; he will call for a general meeting. Commenting on the fate of the club's head coach Milovan Cirkovic, Rage said that the coach has gone on leave and is due to return.

He, however, declined to say the exact return date. Rage also added that the club was planning to register three or four new players in the small window.

He named Ugandan Joseph Owino as one of the players in the club's list of the would be new players and that talks were underway with the Azam FC on the transfer of the player.

"We will register three or four new players in the small window, one of the players had gone for checkups yesterday (Monday) and we are also eying Owino while talks are underway with Azam FC," he said.
