Zimbabwe sends female footballers to Brazil to be impregnated by soccer legendsPosted By: UDAHOGORA Vanessa Peace - On:03/01/2017
Sources connected to SDE.CO.KE in Zimbabwe reveal that a selection of 10 women soccer players (comprising of 5 who plays in the national team , three who play in the local women’s first division and two retired national team players) was made and the government will carter for everything including all costs to deliver and raise the children under the New Sports Generation Fund.
The spokesperson of the local football governing body Zimbabwe Football Association (ZIFA) reveals that the same relationship that saw Zimbabwe men’s team playing Brazil in Zimbabwe National Sports Stadium prior to 2010 World Cup resulted in the agreement to sire football genes to the Southern African nation.
“We applaud the sacrifice made by the 10 brave women who agreed to put national interests first and travel to Brazil for the NSGF project. This was after a recommendation by our local doctors in collaboration with Brazilian doctors to try and transfer footballing genes to Zimbabwe.
All tests have been done and the Brazilian football legends have already donated their sperms, we expect perfect results. How the kids will be raised will be determined by their mothers.” he said.
The initiative is believed to have been engineered by the football local governing body’s ZIFA President who was also selected to lead the regional body COSAFA Phillip Chiyangwa who is eager to leave a legacy in African football.
Perhaps this is the direction Kenya should also take. Our only hope is that our Sports Cabinet Secretary, Hassan Wario is reading this and should perhaps consider this sort of exchange program with Brazil.
