He went on: “I don’t understand social stratification in which thieves are celebrated and considered role models by society. ”Denzel Washington, in the movie American Gangster, says “the loudest one in the room is the weakest one”.
Chivayo, 35, shot to national prominence in December last year after signing a sponsorship deal with the Zimbabwe Football Association (Zifa) which was estimated at $1 million.
He bound himself to clear Zifa’s $180,000 debt to the former national team coach Tom Saintfiet by March 31, 2016.
The rest of the money, according to the contract, “will be progressively released on request by Dr.
Phillip Chiyangwa throughout his tenure.”In February this year, Chivayo committed himself to paying national team coach Kalisto Pasuwa $7,000 per month as salary, after buying the Dynamos legend a brand new Toyota D4D.
Subsequently, small amounts have been released to Zifa – some of it as bonuses for players.
The Rolls Royce-pushing Chivayo displays pictures of himself on Facebook shopping in Dubai, South Africa and the United States.
He frequently posts pictures of himself flying first class to various destinations.
Yesterday, it was “to spend the weekend with my sisters in London”.
He has described himself as a millionaire and once posted a picture of himself meeting President Robert Mugabe in 2014 — circumstances of which were not explained.
