On behalf of all my teammates and everyone at #NFFC, I will be sending a selection of boots and shirts to help grassroots level football in Zimbabwe.

He made his Warriors debut in October in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier away to the Democratic Republic of Congo.
A fan of Darikwa wrote
Thanks, Tendayi for such a good gesture. There is so much talent in grassroots communities with boys playing soccer without boots. This is a motivation to the beneficiaries.
God bless you.
