DYNAMOS and Highlanders resume their traditional rivalry when they clash in the two legged Joshua Nkomo Legacy Shield this weekend.

The tournament is a symbolical event to commemorate and celebrate the life and times of the late vice president, Dr Joshua Nkomo for his outstanding efforts in fighting the liberation of Zimbabwe, political freedom, social and economic prosperity.

The first leg has been scheduled for Rufaro Stadium on Sunday with the second leg set for Tuesday at Barbourfields Stadium in Bulawayo.

The clash between the two sides comes barely a month after the Harare giants were dumped out of the Easy Call Cup tournament by their Bulawayo-based rivals.

Dynamos were handed a 2-1 defeat in the semi-finals with strikers Obadiah Tarumbwa and Knox Mutizwa scoring a goal each while Dembare  left back
Ocean Mushure scored the consolation goal.

It was the first time for Bosso to defeat Dynamos in a competitive match since 2006 when the Bulawayo giants were still under the guidance of Methembe Ndlovu.

Highlanders have been in irresistible form of late and they beat league champions Chicken Inn In to the Easy Call Cup in the final played at Barbourfields on Sunday to finish the season in style.

Ralph Matema made the difference, converting from the spot kick to ensure Bosso ended the season with some silverware.

The forthcoming charity event is aimed at raising funds for the Joshua Nkomo Museum situated at the residence of the late Father Zimbabwe in Matsheumhlophe, Bulawayo.

The organisers of the event- the Joshua Nkomo Foundation-said the tournament is also part of their efforts to ensure that Zimbabweans capture, remember and celebrate annually the efforts of the late VP to ensure that his ideas are transferred into a legacy that will last for centuries to come.

“Indeed, the defining moment of Father Zimbabwe's life was his fight for Unity amongst his people and that legacy should be shown by such events which bring people together in order to full fill “Father Zimbabwe's” dream to ensure that all Zimbabweans live a better life.”
