FOR some, the year 2016 is just an ordinary 52 weeks cycle that will usher them into 2017.

However, to one of the countrya��s most celebrated football clubs, Highlanders, 2016 is a special year that has presented them with a glorious chance that has helped them discover that they are 10 years shy from celebrating a century of existence.

Put simply, Bosso are enjoying their 90th anniversary celebrations that officially started on 28 February with a series of events lined up for the year-long celebrations which will run up to 11December.

The theme for the anniversary celebrations is a�?Our Heritage a�� Our Institution Kayisozi ibulawea��, and in that regard the cluba��s vice chairman Modern Sikhuthele Ngwenya has challenged the entire Bosso family to kick out factionalism for the benefit of the institution.

a�?Highlanders is the biggest club in the land that has turned 90 this year. We have come a long way and we want to say no to factionalism. Factionalism is not healthy for the club because ita��s retrogressive.

At Highlanders we are one, simunye and we should remain united,a�? said Ngwenya who beat another club member and benefactor Kenneth Mhlophe to the position of vice chairman early this year.

Interestingly, last Saturday Mhlophe donated a beast that saw the Highlanders hierarchy, members, players and fans enjoy a braai at the clubhouse 24 hours before their week two match which they unfortunately lost 2-1 at the hands of visiting FC Platinum.

The Bulawayo football giants have reportedly enlisted arts guru Cont Mhlanga and his Amakhosi Arts Centre to co-ordinate the celebrations.

Carnivals, street marches, performances from local and international cultural groups and football activities are expected to be part of the celebrations with close sources revealing that the club would invite one or two clubs from South Africa and Botswana for friendly matches.
