Highlanders name Ronald Moyo as club CEO, Luphahla returns as assistant coach

BULAWAYO – Highlanders Football Club on Tuesday appointed Ronald Moyo as the club’s new CEO.

Moyo was the club’s spokesman since 2018, and has been acting CEO since Nhlanhla Dube exited at the end of last year when his term expired.

Club secretary Morgen Dube said Moyo’s appointment followed a “rigorous process”.

His appointment is with effect from April 1, 2022.

Moyo “emerged the best candidate” after nine people were interviewed for the position.

Former Highlanders defender Sikhumbuzo Ndebele, former Ingwebu marketing and sales manager Prosper Ncube, Pilate Mahlangu, Nkululeko Ndlovu, Tongai Dodo, Nqobile Ngulube, Francis Mpofu and Raymond Gonte were some of those interviewed for the position.

Moyo has been handed a mandate to turn the club into a successful commercial enterprise.

He said after his appointment: “It’s a privilege and honour. All being said and done, it’s not about the elevation, it’s about what we need to achieve as a team. We are looking forward to the challenges and experiences.”

Meanwhile, Highlanders have appointed Joel Luphahla as an assistant to head coach Mandla Mpofu.

Luphahla, who played as a striker for the club, quit Northern Region Division One title contenders Golden Eagles at the weekend.

Highlanders sit 11th in the Premier League table with nine points from eight games, 10 points adrift of leaders Chicken Inn.
