Zimbabwean businessman Wicknell Chivayo has paid the outstanding money owed to national team coach Calisto Pasuwa.

The News Day in Zimbabwe reported that Chivayo delivered a $30 000 cheque to Zimbabwean Football Association president Philip Chivayo. $21 000 of the sum is for the coach’s salary while the rest of the money is a donation.

A chat with the country’s first lady seems to have inspired the tycoon’s act of patriotism.

The sudden change of heart from the businessman comes after he announced that he will stop supporting the national team following after Pasuwa claimed that he wasn’t paid for three months.

“I want to make it clear that we have settled our differences. I want to make it clear that I do this to support the national cause,” said Chivayo.

“Based on advice that I was given by the first lady (Grace Mugabe) that I should not throw tantrums or overreact at the expense of the nation, everything promised to the Warriors will be fulfilled.

“We will continue the way we have been operating. I will continue to get instructions from Chiyangwa, I do not communicate with Zifa since I have no relationship with them.”
