The club management is as good as its own mouth-piece. The impact of a good marketing should not be understated for the success of a club hinges on how it is presented outside. A good marketing management creates an irrisistable brand image and opens up investment doors for the betterment of the club. The future prospects of Dynamos football club looks brighter as the club ropes in the best for its resuscitation pursuit.

The local football clubs have embraced women empowerment by roping in ladies in some of the managerial positions. To mention a few currently assuming the Marketing, Media or Communication Managerial posts there are Chido Chizondo at FC Platinum, Joyce Kapota Caps United, Fadzai Chisveto from ZPC Kariba, Wendy Tinarwo from triangle FC, Kwazinkosi Hlabangana at Highlanders and Yvone Mangunda recently appointed at Dynamos FC.

Mangunda announced that she is joining Zimbabwe's biggest football club, Dynamos AKA Dembare. She said she was headhunted by the club for the Marketing and Communications Manager Post after 8year of sports correspondency at Star FM Radio where Muziwethu Hadebe branded her "the First lady" of Sport.

Its not yet clear why she opted to move from Star Fm but she wrote on her twitter, "As my chapter with Star FM concludes, a new season has begun. I am now the Marketing and Communications Manager for the biggest club in Zimbabwe, Dynamos. Its a privilege to have been headhunted by the most supported team, with the most titles in Zimbabwe."

Mangunda once told the Sunday News in her 2016 interview that she look at women like Minnie Dhlamini and Carol Tshabalala and  want to do more. She highlighlited her desire to cover all the big sporting events in the world and she fared well in her endevours to earn worthy first lady of sport stripes. She brought valuable criticisms to cricket which she once played before she ventured into the showbiz industry in the early 2000, where she played the role of Sibo in soapie Studio 263.

Mangunda's role at Dynamos FC brings hope to the Harare champions as they restructure the club in pursuit to bring the glory days back to Rufaro Stadium. However, questions  will still be hanging on whether the first lady of sport will manage relieve her all round sporting emejesty and give 200% bias to Dynamos and Dynamos alone.
