Mujuru Speaks On Future Plans




Newly — NEWLY-elected Basketball Union of Zimbabwe president Joe Mujuru has set his eyes on taking the development of the sport to all the country's 10 provinces to ensure they have vibrant structures. Mujuru takes over from Addison Chiware, who has been at the helm of BUZ for the past decade after winning Saturday's elections held in Kwekwe.
Under Chiware BUZ has largely remained stagnant with very little to shout about and now attention will be on Mujuru to steer the ship to new heights. Prior to becoming president he was the secretary-general for the last four years. Mujuru accumulated 11 votes to beat veteran administrator and Cameo Sigauke director Roderick Takawira, who was also vying to lead the basketball mother body and got one vote.
Mujuru said although provinces such as Harare and Bulawayo have active structures, BUZ needs to take it to the next level by ensuring all provinces are operating at the same level.
"Our business as BUZ is to see to it that we have strong national teams in place. Development has got to spread, I know Harare is doing a good job, Bulawayo is doing a good job, Midlands and Manicaland are doing a good job. We need to now spread those development programmes seriously, as serious as they are in Harare and Bulawayo, to be that serious in Matabeleland North and Mashonaland East, that's as far as development is concerned.
