THE Zimbabwe Handball Association (ZHF) are set to hold their elections this Friday the 5th of March 2021 in Harare.
The ZHF elections are held after every four years in line with the Olympics calendar. However, these elections were supposed to take place last year in December but were delayed due to Covid-19 pandemic and lockdown restrictions.
The elections will see nine members battling for various posts which include the presidency, vice presidency and committee members. The incumbent president Steward Sanhewe is contesting to retain the post against Sarah Beauty Mtsambiwa who is former head in charge of handball for National Association of Secondary School Heads while Alfos Mhondiwa and Reginald Tsimba are vying for the Vice Presidency post. Mhondiwa is the outgoing vice-president.
Petros Nyathi, Miriam Tofa, Clemence Tauro, Reginald Tsimba and Alfos Mhondiwa are vying for committee membership.
The secretary-general and treasurer are appointed by the executive.
The outgoing executive was ushered into office in December, 2016. After four years at the helm of the federation, Sanhewe believes he still has unfinished business in particular the Vision 2024 project initiated about three years ago.
Only two female candidates, Sarah Beauty Mtsambiwa and Miriam Tofa will be taking part in these elections.
ZHF Secretary Edson Chiroodza said candidates are nominated from provinces and he encourages female members to put forward their names when the association calls for such elections. ZHF chairpersons from all the ten provinces in the country will be voting in these elections.
