Knock and the door shall be opened for you!
These were the sentiments of a Harare-based business man Leonard Mukumba – director of Inter Africa – when he donated an assortment of kits to Premier Soccer League side Bulawayo City FC.
The donation includes a playing kit, 61 jackets, 32 takkies, bags and bibs.
Inter Africa is a bus company that plies different routes countrywide.
Mukumba said he was inspired to donate to the PSL side because the club officials constantly knocked on his doors.
a�?The challenge most clubs face is that they dona��t engage with the corporate world whenever they have problems and ask for assistance.
a�?Bulawayo City FC kept knocking at my door until I obliged to assist them,a�? said Mukumba.
The cluba��s liaison officer Eddie Chivero said when he explained to Mukumba the precarious financial position facing the club, it took only a month for the businessman to chip in.
a�?We were fortunate that he was already looking for a club to partner so we knocked on his door at the right time. It also helped that Mukumba also loves football and it wasna��t difficult to convince him to partner Bulawayo City FC,a�? said Chivero.
The donation is valued at $7 000.
When Bulawayo City FC played Dynamos in the first half of the 2017 PSL in Harare,A� Mukumba catered for the teama��s accommodation in the capital city.
