ZAMBIA Rugby Union (ZRU) interim president, John Chibuye says his major target once elected into office would be to press for the strengthening of rugby at the grassroots.
Chibuye, who is contesting the position of vice president, said in an interview that there could be no future of the sport without a fertile ground to nurture emerging talent.
He said the current ZRU constitution had loopholes and that there was need to review it to conform to the demands of modern standards.
“We have been having challenges with the constitution because it is verge and I think there is urgent need to review it. We need to work in unity with everyone, who will be elected to ensure a smooth running of the union,” he said.
ZRU will hold the extraordinary general meeting to usher in a new executive following the stepping down of president, Martin Musunka and three others namely vice president Owen Mhango and committee members Moono Muleya and Sam Simwanda.
Contesting the elections will be former ZRU president Clement Sinkamba and business executive Ackim Mwale for the presidency with Chibuye and Happy Chipili eyeing the vice presidency.
Paul Sichula and Francis Chitambo are unopposed for the position of treasurer and general secretary respectively.
Joseph Ingwe, Enock Shikabeta, Vincent Liato, James Banda and Isaac Manda are battling for three slots of committee member.
