Dynamos FC hopes of playing in Rufaro stadium seem to be far from happening after efforts to refurbish Rufaro Stadium and turn it into a world class facility were in smoke as the deal between Harare City Council and energy company Sakunda Holdings has collapse last year
The ground is now a habitants of mushroom as soon was witnessed popping out of the ground.
Sakunda through its chairman and business mogul Kuda Tagwirei entered into a partnership deal to refurbish the dilapidated stadium which culminated into the signing of Memorandum of Understanding (MOU).
Sakunda Holdings pledged to refurbish Rufaro stadium early this year but no tangible progress had been done by the company more than six months into the deal.
The company’s Chief Operating Officer Mberikwazvo Chitambo blamed the council on the “toxicity” for collapse of the deal.
“Given the toxicity we have seen in the councils attitude and lack of political will to implement the project on the part of Council, Sakunda hereby withdraws its participation from the project. Notwithstanding, all projects and plans will be donated to council in the public interest,” said Chitambo.
“We are thankful for the cooperation we shared during the subsistence of the MOU and look forward to, partnering the City Council again in suitable projects for the development of its residents and stakeholders.”
