Govt working on $1 million rescue package for Warriors
Yesterday, Government began mobilising resources to lay out a $1 million package for the senior team ahead of their African Cup of Nations campaign in Gabon later this month.
Sport and Recreation Minister Makhosini Hlongwane could not be drawn into giving finer details about the Government rescue package, but revealed that ZIFA president Philip Chiyangwa had approached him on Tuesday for support. The package comes as ZIFA and the Warriors had clashed over a number of issues related to the players outstanding bonuses, accommodation for their training camp and other logistics that are key in ensuring Callisto Pasuwa and his team are prepared for the continental soccer showcase which starts in Libreville on January 14.
Government is also understood to be planning a send off ceremony for the Warriors tomorrow.
