Highlanders Granted Mining Rights In Inyathi

Bulawayo football giants Highlanders Football Club have been granted a mining claim in Inyathi, Bubi district, by the government, the Chronicle reports.

Bulawayo Provincial Affairs and Devolution Minister Judith Ncube was reportedly the brains behind the deal according to a source that said:

Look I know all the parties in this matter wanted this thing to be kept under wraps until all the paperwork was completed but the bottom line is it’s a done deal, umasalu (Bulawayo Provincial Affairs Minister) really played a big role here, ubengumasalu sibili.

She went to the highest office in the land and pleaded on behalf of the club. A mining claim was then identified in Inyathi with the concurrence of the highest office. I am sure all the paperwork will be signed this week but what I know for certain is that Highlanders officials have been shown the area where they will be mining, coordinates are there.

When contacted for comment, Highlanders CEO Nhlanhla did not confirm or deny the claims but said they were working on some income-generating projects:

We have a number of income generating projects that as a club we agreed on which are also part of what we agreed on in our strategic plan and I wouldn’t really want to settle on what you have specifically asked about, suffice to say whatever we venture in, when the time comes, shall be made public

Highlanders lost their sponsor NetOne during the onset of the lockdown as the latter said they wanted to concentrate on fighting the pandemic.
