The 2012 Premier Soccer League top goal scorer, Nelson Maziwisa is living large across the Zambezi river where he is now plying his trade as an attacking midfielder for Zambian side Kabwe Warriors, 263Chat can reveal.
Maziwisa joined the Zambian top flight football league late 2016, helping the side escape relegation and since then, he has become a key pillar of the club.
Speaking to 263Chat yesterday, the former FC Platinum star reflected on his life in Zambia.
“While it is sweet to be home, I must admit that my move to Kabwe is paying dividends. I say so because since my transfer to Zambia, I have managed to make remarkable investments. I cannot mention on the life style because that is of little value. I speak of building a seven roomed house in Kabwe which is 90 percent complete.”
The Kabwe striker-cum-attacking midfielder added that the support he is giving to his family, parents and siblings is a testimony on its own about his life in the foreign land.
“It might not be entirely true to say I could not afford the life style I am having in Zambia while playing at local clubs, but it is true to say there are new things and better things of course for any adventurer. I am absolutely satisfied with my earnings because to me they resonate with my services at the club.
“I take pride in the joy my wife Vanessa and my children are having as a result my efforts. We are a family that support each other. Vanessa is always there for me since day one. When things like that happen you feel proud because your family is happy, is not starving. We may lack a few things here and there but we are happy family.”
Maziwisa who is enjoying a sublime form at Kabwe after netting eight goals this season making him the 5th top goal scorer in Zambia’s top flight football highlighted that since joining the club, he has benefited physical stamina that makes him available for the team.
“I am feeling stronger frankly because in Zambia it is tougher than here. You have to be on top of your game and being consistent throughout the season. Many of our games we play like if we lose we get relegated. So you can imagine the spirit and the tempo.”
Before moving to Kabwe, Maziwisa had unsuccessful trials in South Africa football outfits Supersport United and Chippa United.
Maziwisa started his career at Kuwadzana 1 High School in Harare before moving to Terry Gross High in Triangle subsequently graduating into the Zimbabwe’s top flight Premier Soccer League playing for Triangle Football Club.
