Chang'ombe United Get Shot in the Arm - Jul 26, 2013

Kafashe, who is a student at the University of Manitoba in Canada and a former Vijana and Chang'ombe United basketball player made the remarks on Wednesday in Dar es Salaam when donating sports gear worth 7m/- to Chang'ombe United Club.
The 79 different basketball materials were presented to Chang'ombe United Chairman Adam Gwao. They include balls 13, shoes 18, jersey 30, score board and 18 Adidas Jackets. Kafashe said that he was much impressed with his former team's efforts to promote the game at the grassroots.
"I decided to donate these sports gear soon after I was informed that Chang'ombe United have introduced a junior programme," he said. He insisted that it is time for those living outside the country and have privilege to come forward and support such programme in order to promote sports in the country as government alone can not afford. Kafashe promised unwavering supports to the game's development programmes in the country.
"I'm not a millionaire, I still study and pay my school fees, but I still manage to raise some money earned from part time work outside the school and save it so I can donate to youth development programmes," he said. Gwao thanked Kafashe for being so kind and supportive to his club which, he said, has more than 50 players.
"What you did to our club is a big thing and more meaningful to the players and the programme at large. We are happy that now we've an ambassador," he said Gwao added that the major aim of introducing the junior programme is to promote youth through sports and later find colleges abroad for further studies.
Chang'ombe United coach Mohamed Mbwana applauded Kafashe and urged other Tanzanians to emulate his good example.
