AmaZulu players, Siyabonga Mbatha, Siyethemba Mnguni, Rhulani Manzini and Ohlange alumnus, Sphesihle Maduna took a day off from training to offer their support to the pupils from the Inanda based school on 19 March 2018.
The club’s Youth Technical Director; Ronnie Moroka highlighted the club’s future aims for the satellite project while motivating the learners to focus on their studies.
The club’s Talent Scout; Ayanda Mkhize, AmaZulu Community Trust Programs Manager, Mpho Dintwa and Media Officer, Brilliant Mkhathini were also present.
Ohlange Principal, Siyanda Nxumalo paid homage to Usuthu for the joint initiative between both parties which currently has 9 players enrolled through the bursary program.
“We’re grateful that the team made time to visit the scholars this morning. We hope the students will take a leaf out of what Sphe Maduna has achieved and what was shared by the players today.
“Others as well who are part of the program have examples to follow, the sky is absolutely not the limit, and they can go up and above and beyond the sky,” said Nxumalo.
Bushbuckridge born striker Rhulani Manzini encouraged the scholars to keep all their hopes and dreams alive with God while they strive to put the hard work in the classroom.
The KZN club is currently engaged on a massive drive to revive its development structures through initiatives such as the Glenwood Academy and Ohlange High School, as well as Build It to produce players that will follow on the footsteps of Maduna and many others.Share
