Ezra 'Tshisa' Sibanda has disputed news that the late Vice-President Dr Joshua Mqabuko Nkomo was an avid Dynamos Football Club supporter who would always demand to be kept posted on the team's fixtures, results and log standings.

The Sunday News said Dr Nkomo's former head of security Nehemiah Nyathi, served as part of Dr Nkomo's security team from May 1980 until 1 July 1999, said Dynamos occupied a special spot in Father Zimbabwe's heart.

Nyathi said Dr Nkomo also loved Highlanders but not as much as he loved Dynamos. "Of course he loved Highlanders but not as much as he did Dynamos. He (Dr Nkomo) knew that most of us were Highlanders supporters and when Highlanders was playing at Barbourfields and Dynamos was playing elsewhere he would say, 'Asambeni eBF, manje iDynamos ke kuzwakalani madoda, kumi njani?'" (Lets go to BF, but what is happening with Dynamos).

However, Sibanda said Father Zimbabwe was a die hard Highlanders fan. Sibanda claims that he had an interview with Dr Nkomo and unfortunately state security confiscated his interview tapes which he could have shared.

Sibanda also indicated that it is unbelievable his ex security aid has the guts to lie maybe seeking relevance.

He claims that Joshua Nkomo whom he had privilege of spending time with during his 4 hour interview narrated the history of the club. He talked a lot about missing some Bosso games because Highlanders lost games whenever he was there and laughed saying "bathi ngisinda iteam".
