  1. Good sponsorship,we really appreciate what Mbada are doing .Even the organization is excellent,PSL management team keep up the good work.

  2. That prize money is still a drop in the ocean .Guys after winning a major cup a club should be able to sustain itself for at least a season. Telekom Cup in South Africa pays out millions of dollars .Come on $130 000.00 is peanuts. Diamonds are expensive. Make it at least $500 000.00 to
    $1 000 000. 00. That would also raise the transfer fees for our players when they sign for South African teams

  3. Now and then I do write letters with my ideas to newspapers; I have been doing so for almost 15 years with the hope that what I write does have an influence on society. I am probably not the only one who writes with that objective in mind. Some times I do wander whether our politicians do listen to anyone and if they do, who do they listen to? Do they tap in into other think tanks besides what they get from their executive committees or politburo? It would be pleasing to know that they do give ear to other people who may not be party cadres but are patriotic Zimbabweans all the same.

    Pakuguma kwazvo tose tiri ana sanyika (fellow countrymen or citizens) munyika ino yeZimbabwe; inyika yedu tose. Tose tine chishuvo kuti Zimbabwe ive nyika inobudirira, inoyemurwa, inoyevedza. Tose tine chido chokuti mhuri dzigare munyika yekwedu kwete kunyika dzevamwe.

    Gore harizi pakaza rimwe. Ngatisatambisa mikana iripo yokuti tivake nyika yedu ibudirire. Pakuguma tinodawo kunongedza kuti unowona dhamu rigere apo takavaka tisu nemari yakabuda kumigodhi yekuChiadzwa

    Kana tikashaya chokuzonongedza chakavakwa nemari yakabva kumigodhi yeChiadzwa nemimwe migodhi yakatandiranyika tinenge takundika sedzinza reZimbabwe. Zvinocherwa pasi zvichapera; asi kana mhuri yeZimbabwe ine chekunongedza chakabva muzvishongo izvozvo zvevhu renyika yedu panenge pasina chigumbu pazviri. Rwiyo rweZvishuvo zveZimbabwe (national anthem) runodudza zvakanakisa zvishuwo zvedu. Paya patinoti: vashandi vatuswe (labour rewarded ); ruzhinji rugutswe; navatungamiri vave nenduramo – ipapo tikazadzisa tinenge takunda

  4. The prize money is just worth merely half of a “match box size” of a clear ngoda!!! Nxaaaah!!! Mbada Diamonds????? Can you imagine with an average number of 18 players per team, the 16 teams will have 288 players playing to win $130 000; when Wayne Rooney earns 250 000 GB pounce per week!!! Haah yaaaaah!!!!! Cry my beloved country!!

  5. munhu waka drawer masoja oga anehutsinye. saka rimwe somek ratorova road kunyanya iro rino sponswa ne mbada.
