Mahachi: I sold sugar for income


SuperSport United attacker Kudakwashe Mahachi has taken to social media to share his inspirational story about how he became a footballer despite the obstacles around him.  

The sports world has many players who once grew up in poverty and have become professional footballers with some players even having the hardest upbringing in society. However, it appears that poverty can also be a motivator even if it is heart-breaking in nature.  

That is why many underprivileged youngsters have decided to make money off their talents and help their families get out of poverty.  

In a recent post on social media, the SuperSport United star shared his story of what drives him to succeed. 

“Growing up without a dad was hard for me and my siblings he left when I was 8 and my mum did everything in her power to raise us. She went her way and sold sugar and bread in the street for me to go to school and have something to eat.  

“When I’m in the pitch I think about my mum and it motivates me to work harder because she sacrificed a lot for me to be where I am today. After school, I’d go home change and go join my mum and sell sugar for income at home and food to eat.

“My mum was against soccer but I insisted to play and just because it was something I love and believed in I did it for her to have a better future. 

“Everything I do it’s for my mama I owe it to her. Nothing is impossible to dream big and trust God and You’ll achieve whatever you want in life.”
