Pitman said there is no way he can accept Mponda’s resignation, describing him as hub of the team.

“Peter is Surestream, the institution is where it is now largely because of him and while there might be some misunderstandings, it shouldn’t have reached that point. I should believe there was some communication breakdown,” said Pitman.

Mponda announced his resignation on Tuesday , saying he was being frustrated.

Pitman said Mponda’s offer of resignation has been rejected and he has accepted to carry on.

Mponda confirmed that he will stay put.

Surestream currently at the bottom of the 15-team Super League log table with a single point from four games after three losses and a draw, faces Azam Tigers this weekend.

Therefore, first is to make an inestigation and then try to find a remedy.I think the Board chair did just that,and that’s what is recommended in HR practices but thinking that every Jim and Jack should be let to go once he has handed a resignation is both dictatorial… Read more »

Earlier Mponda said,’I’m surrounded by people who don’t wish me well.’ Now, are you going to keep staying with the very people?
I’m sure the sour scream executive have started a search for another technical director as a B plan since you are not trustworthy, in readness to firing you.
Quitters don’t win, remember.
