Zongo Changing His Ways, Giving Back To Community

Masibusane Zongo is arguably one of the best players that Mzansi has produced in recent years, though his off the field antics proved to be detrimental to his career. Zongo, however, is aiming to redirect his life and give back to the community.

 

He recently donated soccer kits and soccer balls to children in his neighborhood, in KwaZulu-Natal, giving back to the youth in the area. 

 

The 28-year-old Mthatha-born player has been based in KwaZulu-Natal since parting ways with Royal Eagles in the National First Division.

Following his return from prison in November last year, after the (alleged) rape charges against him were withdrawn, Zongo rejoined Eagles for the second half of last season.

He has since parted ways with Eagle and while he plots the next move in his career, he has taken time to help young children in his neighbourhood, as confirmed by his current representative Darryl Dooks.

“I have been looking out for him for some time now since he joined Royal Eagles. I’m the one who actually phoned him in prison,” confirmed Dooks.

“My main thing is that nobody sees the good the boy does. They only see the bad he does off the field,” added.

“For two weeks he’s been indoors and hasn’t done anything. He hasn’t been out and stuff. He’s been training and he’s been coaching kids. He has been going around and donating soccer kits and boots to kids and stuff. He’s been good. Not many players do that and take their time to coach youngsters.

“There’s a lot of footballers who go out and drink and stuff and don't get exposed. It’s really unfair that people only pick on him. My only thing is why people don’t see the good he does besides the bad? We are working on a potential move for him,” said Dooks.

Dooks confirmed to the Siya crew that he took the video doing the rounds on social media of Zongo showing off some expensive items, including a cellphone, wallet and bags. 

“He (Zongo) was at my home and I actually posted it on my Instagram and somebody has stolen it. I mean, we were just at home, chilling and having fun, and people exposed that and made it out to be something bad,” concluded Dooks.
