What did you do with your first pay cheque at the Club?
I bought furniture for my mother’s house, including beds that we did not have at home. I also built a wall around their house.
Describe your idea of happiness.
It is to spend time with people that I cherish; my mother, my sisters and brothers back home.
Who is your favourite musician?
Rick Ross AKA The Boss!
What are you reading at the moment?
I am reading a book by Joel Osteen, “It’s your time”. It is a very inspirational book and I always carry it with me every time I go to camps. I share it a lot with my teammates as it helps one on how to praise the Almighty, how to pray and be sincere to God.
What food don’t you eat?
Stuff like KFC! I am lucky to have a wife that really looks after me and she makes sure that I eat food that is good for sportsmen. We have back-to-back games this season, so it is very important that I eat food that is going to give me lots of energy in the position that I play in.
What scares you the most?
How would you describe your ‘off the field’ personality?
I am a down to earth guy who can also be very shy. I like my space and peace.
What is the quality you most admire in women?
I admire women that are trustworthy, honest and faithful.
How did you spend the New Year?
I went home to Zimbabwe to be with my mother, especially after what she had gone through losing a husband and a daughter. I wanted to spend more hours with her because I am always down here in Johannesburg with my wife and two kids, working. I do not get to see them more often in Zim. It was really nice and I came back with my batteries recharged for 2010.
