Warriors Striker Tino Kadewere has been commended for organising the Onias Kadewere Soccer Tournament.
The tournament is held in honour of Kadewere’s late father who died in 2015. The third edition of the tournament was held at Takashinga Sports Club in Highfield last weekend.
The Zimbabwe Football Association (Zifa) board member (marketing), Sugar Chagonda, said
As Zifa we really appreciate the effort being put by the Kadewere family in as far as the development of grassroots football is concerned.
I think it will be a miscarriage of social justice not to mention the name Kadewere when the development of football is being discussed.
We want to applaud the Kadewere family for what they are doing. This is exactly in line with what the new Zifa board wants to achieve is as far as the development of football is concerned. Our president has made it a priority to resurrect the junior development.
We encourage what they are doing and as Zifa we want to work with all critical stakeholders to develop our game. We want to do more with junior development; we want to put more resources towards the development of junior football.
As Zifa we endorse such initiatives and we want to assure our support. We cannot think of a better future without junior development.
What the Kadeweres are doing is a clear demonstration of what we can achieve if grassroots development is done properly.
We therefore encourage the corporate world to come on board.
We need synergies between corporates and football administration. Kadewere (Tino) is a product of junior football and further evidence of what can be achieved if grassroots football is followed.
