Zimbabwe National Soccer Team captain, Willard Katsande, who led Zimbabwe to their 3rd African Chapionships, donated $13000 of his personal earnings from participating in the tournament. This figure equates to 50% of what the tough tackling midfielder earned during the tournament.
Katsande feted families in his home village of Kawere in Mutoko with groceries.
The Kaizer Chiefs midfield man, who also announced his retirement from International football, showed that he is not just a leader on the pitch, but off the pitch as well.
Given the criticism that followed the Warriors exit from the bi annual tournament, Katsande’s magnanimity was very welcome.
Despite the Warriors failing to progress to the later stages of the tournament, Katsande won many hearts with his tough tackling although at times he narrowly escaped being cautioned by the referees.
Katsande made his international debut in 2010 and has gone on to make 19 appearances for the Warriors, being a prominent feature of the squad that failed to qualify in 2012.
