I did it for mum – Malajila

Warriors striker Cuthbert Malajila, who claimed his second big scalp in two weeks in the ABSA Premiership, said this week he did it for his mother.

Malajila struck the solitary goal in the 81st minute, as Maritzburg United beat title-chasing Mamelodi Sundowns at the Nelson Mandela Bay on Staturday evening.

“Mum it was your goal and your birthday present. I wish you many more and today I was playing for you. Happy belated birthday, I will always love and be there for you mum. I will give thanks and praise kunamwari nguva dzose nekundipa amai vakaita semi mwaaaaaaaaaaaaa (I will always praise God for giving me a mother like you),” wrote the player on his wall on the social network Facebook, soon after the game.

He later told The Zimbabwean that his mother turned “forty-something” on April 12, hence the special dedication. “I can’t say how many years, but she turned forty-something and I am happy to have done that for her. I’m not targeting any goals, but I wish to continue scoring goals for my team because we have an ambition to finish in the top-8,” said the former Highlanders and Dynamos hit-man.

Malajila also struck the only goal for the giant-killers when they won 1-0 away to Kaizer Chiefs Tuesday, also dampening Amakhosi’s title hopes.
