SINCE the Warriors first appeared at the Africa Cup of Nations in S’fax, Tunisia in 2004, local football followers and pundits have worried about the failure by players to take advantage of the windfalls associated with the qualification.


Many a Warrior has found riches but quickly descended into abject poverty after squandering their substantial Afcon earnings without so much as buying a nail!

Many have gone there without housing stands or houses and ordinarily would have used these same earnings to kick start the process of securing their futures by at least acquiring a housing stand.

We reveal that Highlanders second vice captain and national team defender, Peter Muduhwa has done just that!

Six months after being part of the Zimbabwe national team that took part in the 2021 Afcon finals that were staged in Cameroon where he made a single breath-taking appearance in the heart of defence when Zimbabwe beat Guinea 2-1 on 18 January, Muduhwa is developing his 300-square metre housing stand in Pumula South opposite Nkulumane Shopping Mall which he recently acquired.


As if that is not enough, the footie star is in the process of registering his newly acquired kombi to operate under the Zupco franchise.

“It was a good experience to be part of the Warriors squad that recently took part in the Afcon finals.

We had fun and I learnt a lot from the other guys.

Besides getting football lessons from the other guys, we also shared ideas about life and the need to secure ourselves after football.

With the financial proceeds that I got, I managed to buy a housing stand in Pumula South which I am developing.

With the assistance of my wife, we have since managed to develop it to slab level.

Also, from the Afcon earnings I managed to buy an 18-seater kombi which I am in the process of registering under the Zupco franchise,” said the 28-year-old rock-solid Bosso defender.

Ronald “Gidiza” Sibanda

Muduhwa seems to be following in the footsteps of local ex-Warriors players Ronald “Gidiza” Sibanda and Dazzy Kapenya among others who invested in properties following the senior national team’s debut dance at the Afcon finals 18 years ago.

Before making the cut into the Warriors squad that travelled to Cameroon, Muduhwa had experienced some challenges with his quest to play in foreign lands.

After joining Tanzanian side Simba SC in January 2021 on a six-month loan from Highlanders, the steely defender was compelled to retrace home in April 2021 without kicking a ball.

Simba SC had only registered the player in the Champions League competition.

However, he did not feature in any game in the inter-club competition, missing all of the team’s match-day squads.

Simba had played five group matches, booking a place in the quarter-finals of the tournament and topped the pool with 13 points.
