Warriors die-hard supporter and 2019 Total AFCON final superfan, Alvin ‘Aluvah’ Zhakata, is recovering in hospital after being attacked in Chitungwiza yesterday.

The legendary Warriors supporter is popularly known for his Cape to Cairo road trip for 2019 Africa Cup of Nations final that was played in Egypt.
He, unfortunately, arrived when the Warriors he had travelled to support had already been eliminated from the tournament.
The Confederation of African Football (CAF) paid Aluvah’s expenses, VVIP ticket and his flight home after the tournament.
