    Pays outstanding allowances

    MASVINGO- Econet Media chief executive officer Dorothy Zimuto who heads Kwese TV in Zimbabwe has announced that they have adopted the Mighty Warriors as part of their social corporate responsibility and upliftment of the girl child.
    Zimuto said they are going to pay the team's allowances, uniforms and camping fees as well as the outstanding allowances from their game against Namibia in the Africa Women's Cup of (AWCON) first round qualifiers where ZIFA gave $5 to each player.
    She said this at the belated commemoration of the International Women's Day that was hosted by UN Women Entrepreneurs Ambassador Angeline Mikiri of Shekinah Media in Masvingo yesterday. 
     "As an organisation we are waiting for R1 million we applied to the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe so that we give all those teams that qualified for semi-finals last year at the AWCON tournament as well as the sponsorship for the Mighty Warriors," said Zimuto.
    Zimuto bemoaned the lack of sponsorship to women football such that when they participated at the Rio Olympics in 2016 they received very little in allowances as compared to their male counterparts. 
     "It's not fair for people to give sportswomen peanuts after having raised the country's flag so high. For example Kirsty Coventry has received recognition but the senior women footballers are not receiving the same treatment. If they get sponsorship it will go a long way in boosting their morale and level of competition," said Zimuto.
