President Robert Mugabe’s wife Grace Mugabe has begged underworld figure Wicknell Chivayo to continue bankrolling the national team the Warriors after he threatened to pull out over bad publicity.
Ex-fraud convict Chivayo escaped to London this week as investigators probed his tax and official government tenders in an attempt to nail him for money laundering.
Chivayo told reporters Friday that Mrs Mugabe had begged him to continue funding the Warriors as pulling out would expose the national team.
Zifa president Phillip Chiyangwa told journalists Friday that he could not think of anyone with enough money at present to fund the national team.
