Grant and Khumalo will speak at a football forum in Zimbabwe


According to several publications, former Chelsea coach Abraham Grant will be one of the participants at the Zim Football Forum, which will be held in Harare in late October.

Abraham, in addition to the London club, also coached West Ham, Portsmouth, and the national team of Ghana. In addition, with Maccabi Tel Aviv and Maccabi Haifa, he has repeatedly won the Israeli championship, so there is no doubt about the professionalism of the coach. Along with Grant, South African football legend Khumalo will give his lecture.

Besides the two guest stars, speakers at the forum will include Shlomi Miner, IT specialist of the Israeli Football Federation; Senzo Mbatu, football specialist and general manager of the Young African Sporting Club; Simon Peter, football marketing specialist and founder of AfriSoccer - organizer of the Tanzania Football Forum.

As the forum will last more than one day, visitors can also listen to other lesser-known personalities, including Gerald Seaband, former rugby player and one of the shareholders of Real Betis Balompe of La Liga.

Experienced personalities whose careers are over and young players are invited to speak.

The forum will also present an award to the legendary coach Ali Dube. The coach is believed to have fostered many talented players and inspired young boys and girls to play the sport. This is especially important given that young people from poor families are often involved in drugs, gambling, and prostitution. According to statistics from, users under 25 make up a large half of all visitors. Ali Dube was able to warn many children and teenagers against this sad fate by getting them interested in football.

Forum organizer Terrence Malunga says preparations are in full swing, and most of the guest speakers have confirmed their participation. These will include football stars, sports experts, and specialists in near-football fields.

For example, the forum will be attended by partners from the Real Betis Academy, Glytime Foods, ZIFA, Lumiworld, Ehost, and Vusa Sport.

Special attention will be given to Catherine Nyachionjeka, an operational management expert and director of the Zimbabwe Institute.
