Attempts to get comments from AFC Leopards chairman Dan Mule or his Secretary General, Oscar Igaida bore no fruit as their phones went answered. This could trigger the many changes expected at the Den in the coming months with fans calling for resignation of entire National Executive Committee.

In their last AGM held over the weekend, AFC Leopards members passed a resolution that makes it tougher to kick out NEC members. In the new resolution, it will require over a third of the club registered members and two thirds of the branches’ support to kick out an official.

Ingwe are currently placed 12th on the table after collecting 16 points from 15 matches.
