HIGHLANDERS coach Kelvin Kaindu has resigned, giving in to pressure from fans who reacted angrily Sunday as the club lost 1-3 to visiting ZPC Kariba.

Irate fans called for Kaindu’s resignation as ugly scenes characterised the loss to ZPC Kariba with supporters pelting players and technical teams of both clubs with missiles after the match.

Sunday’s defeat followed another loss to Harare City.

Kaindu was said to have thrown in the towel Tuesday, ending a three-year reign at the Bulawayo club.

He leaves the club fourth in the league, seven points behind defending champions and current leaders Dynamos with just six games remaining before the curtain comes down on the season.

Highlanders are desperate to win the league title, having finished runners up to bitter rivals Dynamos in the last two seasons.

Although the league title remains a distant prospect Highlanders are still in the running for some silverware this season.

The club are in the Chibuku Super Cup semi-finals and can still make the semi-finals of the Mbada Diamonds Cup should they finish the league in the top four.

Club CEO Ndumiso Gumede said he was not aware of the Zambian coach’s resignation.

“As far as I know, he (Kaindu) is still here,” Gumede told the Bulawayo Chronicle.

“He passed through the office and told me that there were some bills that he needed to settle so he was going to withdraw some cash to do his transactions.

“As for the resignation letter, I’m the club’s conduit and didn’t receive anything.”

However club sources said Kaindu had left by mutual consent.

“Kaindu resigned on Monday during the meeting that they had,” said an insider who preferred not to be named.

“It was a formal meeting where he properly announced his resignation on his own. Actually he even said he enjoyed his stay at the club.

“What was then agreed was that he and the club were going to issue a joint statement today.”
