Clubs in the Harare Basketball Association (HBA) have been criticised for failing to interpret the Basketball Union of Zimbabwe constitution which led to the cancellation of the annual general meeting on Saturday.
HBA spokesperson, Carlos Munda said it is shocking that clubs are not familiar with the Basketball Union of Zimbabwe’s constitution which resulted in the postponement of elections at the weekend.
Munda bemoaned the fact that clubs in the Harare basketball league are not well versed with the nomination process, saying it is a big cause for concern.
“There is a big problem in the HBA in terms of the interpretation of the constitution. Clubs are supposed to nominate from within their structures but they did so from across the board. As it is, the elections have been postponed and the clubs have been given seven days to go through the constitution so that they know what is required in the nominations,” Munda said.
The HBA’s annual general meeting, which had been slated for last Saturday, will now be held on the 20th of this month.
With the clubs in the HBA having been given seven days to familiarise themselves with the Basketball Union of Zimbabwe constitution, the elections are therefore expected to take place without failure in twelve days time.
