THE Kitwe Playing Fields (KPF) Association Limited board of directors has been reconstituted following successful conclusion of the mediation process by Ndola lawyer Mwila Chitabo.

And the KPF board of directors has with immediate effect appointed an interim committee that will run the affairs of its Sports Complex.

The KPF board of directors has been reconstituted to include one representative from Kitwe City Council (KCC) and another member from the Kitwe District Chamber of Commerce (KDCC), in line with the Consent Order issued by Chitabo following protracted arbitration.

The Consent Order follows mediation by Chitabo between Kitwe Playing Fields Association Limited as plaintiffs and Kitwe United Football Club and KCC as defendants and that the reconstituted board of directors shall continue in office until expiration of their current term in January 2016.

“Upon expiration of the term of the current board of directors, a new board of directors shall be constituted to include the members drawn from other sporting disciplines represented at Kitwe Playing Fields,” reads the Consent Order in part.

The KPF board members are Peter Manda as chairperson, Kitwe town clerk Bornwell Luanga, representative from the KDCC Raj Karamchand, who is also former Zambia Rugby Union (ZRU) president, Gilbert Mumba who is board secretary, Mwaba Malama, Joe Mwila, Jeremiah Manda and Kasanda Mwila.

During the board meeting at Shebourne Guest House at the weekend, Manda said the board of directors had a duty to ensure that the KPF Sports Complex was rehabilitated to offer community activities to the people of Kitwe.

He said every effort would be put in, to ensure that all the sporting activities were resuscitated so that KPF could revive its participation in major national events.

Manda, who is former ZRU president, said already, the rugby club had already started playing in the national league and would this year host its traditional tournament – the KPF American tournament.

The interim committee has been directed to revive all other sporting disciplines at KPF such as tennis, hockey, weightlifting, swimming, badminton, and darts.

The interim committee, which was appointed at the KPF board meeting at Sherbourne Guest House at the weekend, comprises Patrick Kampengele, Justin Lombe, Nazir Geloo, Gajan Sothylingam, Kizito Chewe and Westone Munguya.

The meeting resolved that the interim committee will start the membership recruitment drive and also identifying people who were interested in running certain portions of the sports complex.-Story courtesy of SUMA SYSTEMS.
