The opposition party leader has decided to leave politics for a few hours to rally behind the national team in its quest to lift the country’s flag high and qualify for the biennial continental event to be hosted by Gabon.
Tsvangirai’s spokesperson Luke Tamborinyoka confirmed the development to Standardsport yesterday.
“I can confirm that the president will be at the stadium to support the Warriors at Rufaro on Sunday. He is a patriotic Zimbabwean and should also support our national teams,” Tamborinyoka said.
“It is his wish that our football team gives the nation something to cheer about so that we can at least forget the gloom and doom which is around us for a moment. He will definitely be donning a Warriors jersey like every other patriotic Warriors supporter,” he added.
This development could put pressure on the under-fire Zifa chairman Cuthbert Dube, who has been an uncommon sight at
national team matches during his entire reign as Zifa boss
