Nakamba who also happens to be the warrior’s midfielder said he was honored to have met the Duke of Cambridge in person. He added that he cherishes moments he spent with Prince William.
Prince William was at Bodymoor Heath on Tuesday to open the club’s new high-performance center and learn more about the Aston Villa Foundation’s outstanding community outreach work when he met Nakamba and several other senior players from Aston Villa.
Nakamba, who continues to be an inspiration to young people, last month paid school fees for 1 000 students across the country. He paid the tuition for the 1 000 students across the country through his Marvelous Nakamba Foundation.
The star midfielder said that though the foundation has paid school fees for 1 00 0 students, he personally desires to sponsor more children and hopes to do so in the future.
The Marvelous Nakamba Foundation is involved in several projects across Zimbabwe which include revamping the Hwange Hospital to provide the best health services for the community, feeding programmes for children at rural and marginalized schools, provision of sanitary wear for marginalized schools as well as a program to fight against Covid-19.
