HIGHLANDERS speed merchant Gabriel Nyoni, a third year marketing student at National University of Science Technology (NUST), reveals he has intentions of venturing into student politics.
The 22-year-old, currently on attachment with a Non Governmental Organisation (NGO) Bekezela Home Based Care, told B Metro Sport that soon he will be campaigning for the NUST Student Representative Committee (SRC) presidency.
a�?I am an ambitious young man and I will be venturing into student politics at NUST as soon as I finish my attachment in August. I am eyeing the NUST SRC presidency. I will start my campaign after I finish my attachment in August,a�? said Nyoni.
He revealed his role model is President Robert Mugabe who he says has done a splendid job for the country 35 years after independence.
a�?I am greatly inspired by President Mugabe. His inspiration to me has nothing to do with my first name and his middle name (Gabriel). He is a great leader who has done well for the country since 1980. I believe I have the quality to lead at Nust. I think I am a natural leader,a�? said Nyoni who is affectionately known as Granvia by hordes of Bosso fans courtesy of his speed.
Asked on how he will balance politics, studies and the job at hand at Bosso the player went: a�?Ita��s all about time management. There is nothing impossible. I go for training and I also do my work where I am attached. Nothing can stop me.a�?
Many Bosso fans and local football neutrals will always remember him for his first goal for Highlanders in 2013 against Monomotapa at Barbourfields Stadium which he went to spice with his a�?Underwear Celebrationa�?.
Nyoni, a former Pamushana High School student in Masvingo who is married to Chivaraidzo Charity Mukome, removed his shorts and bolted away leaving his pursuing teammates puzzled.
