Drawu groups legends

Former Eiffel Flats and Circle United striker, Tonderai Drawu has set-up Mabvuku Tafara Legends Association, aimed at educating and empowering former footballers to take responsibility of communities and themselves.

“After realising how most former footballers are suffering and wasting away in abject poverty today, I decided to come up with this association,” Drawu told The Zimbabwean recently.

“This Mabvuku community has many former footballers and I am convinced this project will help them get back on their feet to help themselves and the community. Our football is also going down because former players are not involved and this is where this project comes in. We will have former players taking up various roles in educating youngsters on their on and off pitch lives. I want to get everyone involved through this project.”

A former player who refused to be named and living in abject poverty applauded Drawu’s efforts and called for government to support him.

“I failed my life just because I made a mistake of not thinking of life after football career. Drawu is on track and if he is supported a lot of players will have a vision for their lives after football careers,” he said.
