Former Caps United forward Nyasha Mushekwi was left extremely disappointed following the Zimbabwe Revenue Authority’s (ZIMRA) decision to sequestrate the bus he bought for his former club pending review of duty.
Mushekwi, who is currently in South Africa where he is preparing for the upcoming Chinese football season, believes that buying the bus was perhaps a mistake. He said:
What I can say is that the news is very disappointing, especially after you have done everything to try and help sport in your country, and – for me – it’s like saying in Zimbabwe one can’t do something good and it gets celebrated because this is our country and we are the ones who can make a difference.
It makes you think twice, when such things happen, and you end up asking yourself if this was worth it, at all, or I could have taken whatever money I invested into the project and use it for my personal needs where I would not have to go through all these problems.
Mushekwi revealed during the handover ceremony of the bus to Caps United that he had tried to get a waiver on duty for the bus but was asked to pay.
He was not present at the event but his sister, Nyari, read a speech on his behalf.
