Chevrons skipper donates salary

Harare - Zimbabwe limited overs cricket interim captain Chamu Chibhabha has for the past five months donated at least 10 percent of his salary to the vulnerable.

The all-rounder this week said, “My background has taught me to be generous. If someone had chosen not to be generous to me, I wouldn’t have been where I am at the moment. My heart bleeds for the needy members of society.

“I have always longed to help the underprivileged. I am happy that I have since started doing that. I am going to do that for some time. You know this is my way of saying thank you to the society which supported me through thick and thin. Definitely, I might have ended up pursuing something different from cricket had I not been given that scholarship.

“If someone helped me achieve my goals then I should also help someone achieve their goals. Basically, the money that I have been using in this initiative depends on several factors like the number of people in need of the help among others.”

Since the new coronavirus-induced lockdown came into effect half a year ago, Chibhabha has helped five children’s homes and supports an elderly grounds man at Takashinga Cricket Club.

Away from his charity work, Chibhabha is itching to get back onto the field of play after engagements with Australia, India and Afghanistan were cancelled in recent months due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Game time is on the horizon, though, following confirmation of a tour to Pakistan in November.
