Strive Masiyiwa Finaly Comes To The Rescue As Kwesé TV Bankrolls Mighty Warriors!

Zimbabwe business tycoon and Econet Wireless boss Strive Masiyiwa has finally come to the rescue of Zimbabwe Football Association after the board failed to pay Mighty Warriors allowances after their comprehensive AWCON qualifier first round victory over Namibia.

In a move that shocked many in the domestic football arena, Econet Media Limited through their subsidiary, Kwese TV announced yesterday to take over the sponsorship of Mighty Warriors' participation in the Africa Cup Of Nations qualifiers after learning of their embarrassing situation.

Mighty-Warriors staged a two-day sit-in at the Association' village in Harare after paid $5 each for allowances after their incridible back to back result against Namibia's Gladiators last weekend.

Masiyiwa who also owns over half of private company Liquid Telecom's shares, which provides fiber optic and satellite services to telecom firms across Africa, is one of Africa's successful businessman with a Real Time Net Worth of $1,3 billion

ZIFA have been in the past decade tried to lure back Masiyiwa into sponsoring local football, but failed due to the Association's intransparent in handling finances.

"After learning about what the Mighty Warriors went through and as a woman and head of Kwese TV in Zimbabwe, i decided to adopt the Mighty Warriors so that they are paid as much money as their male counterparts," said Dorothy Zimuto at a Woman's Day commemorations in Masvingo on Wednesday.

Mighty Warriors will play Zambia in their second and final Africa Cup of Nations qualifier to book a ticket to Ghana 2018 finals.
