“Sport is something that brings people together, as you can see the number of Zimbabweans here and as Zororo-Phumulani we take pride in supporting the girl child, we supported the Gems on their World Cup campaign here in South Africa and we also supported Kudakwashe Chiwandire in her title fights, so we take pride in supporting Zimbabwean talent so that they reach their full potential,” said Zororo-Phumulani customer experience manager, Fungai Moyo.

Zororo-Phumulani executive marketing manager, Tendai Mangoti said, “We are very happy with their performances coming through from a ban and going all the way to the semi-finals, as a corporate, we will continue to support them in any way we can and also honour our promises as we have always done because they are bringing joy to the nation.”
