The 19-year-old Zemura who recently joined Bournemouth’s Under 21 squad from Macauley Bonne’s Charlton Athletic, was born in England to Zimbabwean parents.
Warriors manager, Wellington Mpandare told ZTN News on Monday that Zemura has expressed interest in playing for Zimbabwe. He said:
Yes, he said he is interested in playing for Zimbabwe and the process is still ongoing. It is good he has made such a breakthrough and we have been following his progress.
We have talked about the issue of the passport and that is what he needs to work on right now. So he will be available for selection once that has been rectified.
It will be up to the coaches whether they want him in the team or not.
… The last time we talked, he indicated he can also play in midfield. There is no doubt he is a quality player given his age.
