Dembare star Mukamba goes AWOL again

DYNAMOS midfielder Denver Mukamba will again miss the decisive final Castle Lager Premiership tie against Chicken Inn on Saturday after going AWOL for the second time.

Mukamba has not been attending training since he appeared before the club management last week where he was given a final warning.

Dynamos team manager Richard Chihoro said on Wednesday they were not aware of the player’s whereabouts.

“We don’t know where he is. He has not been attending training. Obviously we expected him to be part of the team but he has not reported for training,” said Chihoro.

Coach Lloyd Mutasa said they would deal with his issue at the end of the season.

“He has not reported for training like the manager has told you but this is an issue we will discuss at the end of the season. Look it’s just one game left before the end of the season, so we can only talk about that after the weekend match,” said Mutasa.

Mukamba and team mate defender Lincoln Zvasiya had been suspended after skipping training sessions without communicating with the technical team. They subsequently missed the crucial trip to Ngezi Platinum where the Glamour Boys were defeated 2-0 to fall further behind in the championship race.

They also missed the 1-0 win against Chapungu.

The pair was then hauled before the club hierarchy to answer questions over their conduct.

The club hierarchy eventually decided to part ways with Zvasiya whose contract with the Harare giants runs out on December 31 this year.

Mukamba, who still has two more years left on his contract, was given a final warning after he told the management that he was unwell when he failed to show up at training.

He, however, couldn’t make it for the trip to Bulawayo last weekend where Dynamos played Bulawayo City and Bantu Rovers as he had not been training with the team. Mukamba was, however, expected to join others at training this week ahead of the showdown with Chicken Inn on Saturday.

The Glamour Boys are involved in a fierce tussle for the championship with FC Platinum who lead the standing with 69 points, two ahead of them.

The Zvishavane based side travel to Chapungu where they need a victory of any margin to be crowned champions.

Should FC Platinum beat Chapungu to win the championship, it will be the first time since 1966 for a team from outside Harare or Bulawayo to win the ultimate prize of domestic football.

The last team from outside Harare or Bulawayo win the championship was ST Paul’s FC then based in Musami, Murewa. It will also be the second time for Norman Mapeza to win the championship having guided Monomotapa to glory in 2008.
