"One of our talented athletes, Mushukutu urgently needs help to participate in local, regional and international competitions," Sailas Chawira, a sports developer at the Academy, said in a recent interview.
"The girl is a promising athlete for this country and needs support to help her buy training equipment and travel for competitions. Her needs also include money for transport, accommodation, meals, kit (tracksuits, spikes). Youngsters are our future and should we help her realise her dream, we would have developed our country. She has the potential to bring a number of medals to Zimbabwe,” he said.
The 14-year-old Chikanga primary school pupil has already won a number of accolades at various athletics meets that include the Nestle Zimbabwe competition, Confederation of School Sport Association of Southern Africa and the COSSASA athletics games. – Those wishing to help can contact email: t[email protected] or call her mother: Unice Musemwa on Cell: +263 783 92 980, or father: Mungwari Mushukutu on Cell: +27 730 004 641.
