ZIMBABWE – ELEVEN young Zimbabwean players are currently in England where they are attending a junior development programme under English Premiership soccer giants Manchester United.

The young players, who left the country on August 18 and are scheduled to return home this coming Monday, are currently enjoying this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity in England, courtesy of Munya Maraire’s World Wide Scholarships programme.

World Wide Scholarships Group, in partnership with Manchester United Soccer Schools UK Residential Camp, sent the 11 junior players for development with the world’s top club’s development programme.

The 11 players, whose team leader is Richard Solobala, are Zion Moore, Karl Hlongwane, Masimba Chigumira, Kelvin Marufu, Leo Maughara, Tadiwanashe Ngomane, Mudiwa Matyenga, Mufaro Mhariwa, Langton Maunganidze and Tinashe Chitereka.

Their training camp is being held at Denstone College with qualified Manchester United Soccer Schools coaches.

During the training camp, the players will be involved in seven days of intensive training and development. They will also get a chance to attend today’s English Premiership match between Manchester United and Fulham at Old Trafford.

Apart from this, the young Zimbabwean players will attend professional seminars developing their game as a player and they will also visit the Manchester Soccer Players Megastore.

One member of the team, nine-year-old Masimba Chigumira (Junior), son of Masimba Chigumira of Nelspot Holdings, this week received the Manchester United Junior Soccer Player of the Day award during the training camp. Masimba Chigumira (Junior) is a pupil at St John’s Preparatory School here in Harare and was chosen in the top 20 of the World Wide Scholarships team.

The objectives of the Manchester United Junior Soccer Schools is for each individual to attain their optimum level of performance and benefit from being coached the “Manchester United way” by highly qualified professional coaches.

All activity is directed to the developmental age of the participant.

Programmes are challenging but achievable, guaranteeing that each child leaves the training camp with a raised self-esteem and most importantly having experienced fun and enjoyment.

Munya Maraire, the World Wide Scholarships president, recently said this about the training camp: “Being able to promote this programme across Africa is a great opportunity. Working with the world’s biggest sporting brand is a challenge my company is looking forward to.

“With God nothing is impossible.”

Meanwhile, WWS have severed their ties with Castle Lager Premiership soccer side Blue Rangers.

The two sides entered into a partnership at the beginning of this season but WWS announced yesterday that they have pulled out of the deal with the local football club as owners ceding shares back to the former management — Eyelevel Investments.

According to a Press release from WWS, the decision to end their “marriage” with Blue Rangers was made on Wednesday.

The organisation, whose main vision is to link talented sports and academic students with scholarships and university placements overseas, said they made this decision to sever their ties with Blue Rangers as emphasis to continue to focus on their core business which is to develop junior talent.

“The World Wide Scholarships organisation signed a Memorandum of Dissolution of partnership with Eye Level (Pvt) Limited and the agreement was amicable and without prejudice to any of the parties involved,” said World Wide Scholarships in their Press release.

World Wide Scholarships have been linked with Juniro development initiatives with AC Milan Junior Camp and the Manchester United Soccer School.

They have also been running junior football trials in Zimbabwe, Mozambique and South Africa with the option of linking junior talent with scholarships in soccer and other sporting activities.

The hot issue of
language teaching(that teachers who cannot speak local languages should not be allowed
to teach in a particular Region(s)

This would create regionalism. This now amounts to discrimination. It amounts
to the breach of the human rights of the teachers in question. The system has
been functioning well for all the past years. People should put aside the issue
of language. Any teacher who is qualified can teach any language if help is
rendered to them by their colleagues. In all schools there is collegiality, so
this is plausible. Any trained teacher if given the opportunity, they can learn
to teach the language in question, if they are continuously helped by their
work mates. It has always been the case in the past. Even in other
jurisdictions is the same thing ,that is in South Africa. They can be assisted
instead of turning them away. This will create divisions in the country. The
government should continue with the previous policy of deploying teachers. The
system has been functioning well. The country should not be divided into
language provinces. Zimbabwe is one country and everyone has the right to work
in any part of Zimbabwe. These same people who are pushing for this type of
recruitment will in turn complain in time to come that there are in equalities
entrenched in the government system .Why? This is because in Harare they would
want to employ someone who is proficient in Shona so that they can deal effectively
with the problems of the people in Harare. Conversely, in Matabeleland they
would only employ people who speak Ndebele. That is ,they would follow a
parallel behaviour. One needs to be very careful in embracing such an
unreasonable and unsound policy. This will only polarise the country. The
government has to stop this idea as soon as possible. And make it compulsory
for the Ministry of government to deploy teachers were there is a need. I am
sure all people of sound mind will agree with this idea. Some changes are unnecessary
.They only create problems or reawaken problems of the past.Everyone needs to
ponder over this issue. Everyone needs to scrutinize this carefully and think
of the repercussions that it may breed. ‘One Zimbabwe , one nation’. The
possible long term solution is to encourage teachers to learn both main
languages or all languages spoken in Zimbabwe. The
teachers’ Colleges can have people employed on temporal bases to come and teach
the other languages during the course of teacher training.
