He is one of the finest talented defenders to ever evolve from Zimbabwean football, but Alexander Maseko is also doing wonders off the field.

Last year he established his mobile company, Vodashop, in Fourways. Maseko, who quit soccer more than a decade ago, has been involved with Vodacom since he called it a day in football, and he is setting his sights on greater things with plans to establish his own cellular network to connect all of Southern Africa.

“I have been in the industry for a long time and I am learning many different things. I can’t rule out the idea of establishing my own cellular network company. With Zimbabwe facing network problems, I think it’s a great opportunity for me to expand my skills for the nation.”

Maseko is also at an advanced stage of setting up his sporting company which will oversee the wellbeing of youngsters in Alexander. The company will specialize in funding underprivileged young players, helping them out with school fees and giving them food.

“My company is open to any youngster aiming for greater heights in his career. We don’t want to see the young people committing crime, taking drugs or roaming the streets, we aim to keep them busy,” he said.

As former Zimbabwean national team defender, Maseko played for Highlanders and Mamelodi Sundowns at club level.
