FORMER Warriors captain, Benjani Mwaruwari has come to the rescue of Entembeni Old People’s Home in Bulawayo by donating groceries following a break-in at the institution last week.
Thieves recently pounced on Entembeni Old People’s Home and got away with groceries, which left the elderly stranded.
Through the Benjani Mwaruwari Foundation and Associates, the former Warriors captain chipped in with a donation of grocery items that include mealie meal, cooking oil and beans.
Mwaruwari was represented by his is mother, sister, and brother.
“We will no longer hunger when it is like this. We know we have those that remember us and we are certain God will bless the hands that gave. Benjani is that person who considers others more. So I am happy with what he did today,” said Entembeni Old People’s home Administrator, Naomi Mhlanga.
Earlier, Mwaruwari had also donated grocery items to the Magwegwe community in an initiative which also saw some Highlanders players benefiting.
Mwaruwari horned his football skills as a young boy in Magwegwe and turned out for the now-defunct Air Zimbabwe Jets before crossing the border to South Africa where he joined Jomo Cosmos.
He was to find his way to France’s AJ Auxerre before stamping his footmark in the English premiership where he plied his trade at Portsmouth, Manchester City, and Blackburn Rovers.
