Warriors super fan Alvin “Aluvah” Zhakata has been given a 5-star accommodation in Cairo until next Thursday.
This was revealed by local journalist Steve Vickers through a post on his Twitter page. He wrote:
More great news for Warriors fan Alvin Zhakata – he has been given 5-star accommodation in Cairo until next Thursday as part of Visa’s Unstoppable Stories campaign! Thursday? Yes, Aluvah not hurrying back, he wants to go to the Red Sea and do some other tourism!
Zhakata travelled the 11 000km-journey from Harare to Cairo by road and faced several obstacles along the way.
As a result, he reached Egypt several days after the Warriors had exited the tournament at the Group stage.
After starting a GoFundMe campaign to raise money for the trip back home, Zhakata got his expenses covered including a flight ticket to return to Zimbabwe.
Zhakata’s plight caught the attention of CAF President Ahmad Ahmad who presented him with a VIP ticket for the Afcon final between Algeria and Senegal this Friday.
