‘I’M MORE APPRECIATED IN MZANSI THAN IN ZIM’

CAPS United legend, Method Mwanjali, feels unwanted in Zimbabwe and is now focusing on a transport business in South Africa.

Mwanjali retired from football two seasons ago after spending two decades on the field.

He claims his logistics and transport business has been going from strength to strength in Mzansi over the last 10 months as he is also reaping the rewards of his connections.

“I’m enjoying this new journey, you have to keep moving for you to survive and I cannot complain much with how things have been going,” he said.

“I have family and friends who are showing me the way. 

“You definitely need someone for you to unlock the next level, especially in a foreign country where you need to be extra careful.

‘’I also want to thank Zororo Phumulani for giving me a soft landing because they have been there for me, they have been very supportive to all Zimbabweans who are in South Africa without asking anything in return.

“Transport business is something which I chose not because I do not want to give back to the game that made me this person that I am today but I weighed options with the savings which I had and I saw every reason to invest in this business because I have more knowledge about it than any other field besides football.”

Mwanjali is now working on attaining a CAF C licence. 

The 40-year-old said retired footballers are being wasted in this country.

He claimed he feels more appreciated in South Africa than Zimbabwe, claiming he has lost count of the youth tournaments in which he has been invited as a guest in Mzansi.

“It really pains me that former footballers are treated like vultures in Zimbabwe, they do not want us to take influential roles and it is something which has been going on for a long time and we can only hope that maybe one day things will change.

“My plea is ZIFA should give us a chance just once and see what we can bring to the table.

“I’m very happy for Clemence Matawu after his recent appointment as the Warriors team manager.

“It really hurts me that I’m more appreciated in South Africa than in Zimbabwe.”
