NGEZI Platinum Stars midfielder Nisbert Muze-nda is probably the coolest schoolboy in the country.
The 17-year-old is doing his A Levels at Wanganui in Mhondoro.
The National of Association of Secondary School Heads have recognised Muzenda with a rare reward for playing in Division Two, Division One and PSL in a space of one-year and six months.
This association have elevated Muzenda to the position that will see him wearing the tracksuits which are meant for headmasters.
NASH district chairperson, Abinel Mutembwa who is also the headmaster at Wanganui Secondary School, said exceptional students deserve this type of acknowledgement.
“What he has accomplished, within a short period, says a lot about his mental strength and hunger for success. I believe it is way beyond his love for football, he is someone who was destined for greatness.
“I sat down with my colleagues within the National of Association of Secondary School Heads and we all agreed that we should honour this boy for his remarkable strides.
“We did this not only to make him feel special but there are many children who have the capacity to surpass his achievements and we did this to challenge them,” said Mutembwa.
He said he is always assisting Muzenda to deal with culture shock.
“He is now well known at school and in the community of Mhondoro, they are now idolising him and this comes with a lot of weight.
“Girls and bad friends also want to be close to him.
“He will definitely struggle to reach his full potential if there is no one to remind him about the bigger picture and since he spends most of his time at school, it should be our duty as teachers to give him all the information he needs to survive in this brutal field.
“I’m confident that he will succeed in life because he is a bright student with a huge football talent,” said Mutembwa.
Meanwhile, the team’s executive member, Rumbidzai Muyambuki is currently in Spain where she was invited for the annual World Football Summit which got underway yesterday.
