Chippa’s media officer, Lukanyo Mzinzi, confirmed that Harrison has already started in his new role as head coach at the club.
“He was at training on Friday morning. It’s just that I can’t issue a press release at the moment because the chairman (Siviwe Mpengesi) is away. But it’s official, and I can confirm that,” said Mzinzi.
