“Despite the tough times being experienced in the country owing to the coronavirus pandemic, we have managed to renew the contract and are looking towards a good partnership.
“Our main aim is to make sure that we have good competition in the league and also see to it that we create employment through sports.”
Tanzania Football Federation (TFF) president Wallace Karia, who was present, said: “We are entering into the fourth year with the support from KCB, and we are confident their support will continue to be boosted as we strive to build football in the country.”
Meanwhile, Simba official Haji Manara has paid a fine of Tsh5 million after he was accused of taking sides during the case pitting midfielder Bernard Morrison from Yanga SC.
Manara was fined alongside Hassan Bumbuli of Yanga, though his mistake was different.
Simba have confirmed Manara has indeed, paid the fine as ordered by TFF on their social media pages.
“Our official Haji Manara has today [Wednesday] visited the TFF offices to pay a fine of Tsh5 million.”
Simba and rivals Yanga entered into a war of words before the Ghanaian midfielder was allowed to play for the league champions.
Yanga had reported Simba to TFF claiming they had signed Morrison while he was still contracted to them until 2022, a decision TFF dismissed and thus allowing the player to switch to Simba.
Simba and Yanga are currently sitting on four points in the league table.
The Wekundu wa Msimbazi won their first match 2-1 against promoted side Ihefu FC before a 1-1 draw against Mtibwa Sugar while Yanga drew 1-1 against Tanzania Prisons before beating Coastal Union by a solitary goal.
