Shingi Kawondera alive




A Whatsapp message being circulated alleging that former CAPS United, Darren T and Warriors striker Shingi Kawondera had died, has been dismissed as false.

The message being circulated claimed Kawondera had passed away early this morning at Parirenyatwa Hospital after succumbing to respiratory problems.

The footballer responded with a sarcastic status update on Whatsapp.

Straight after leaving SuperSport in South Africa, Kawondera left for Cyprus where he played before his once promising career was eventually washed down the drain. Not only was he broke, his mentally instability forced him to be admitted into hospital.

In a candid May 2012 interview, Kawondera admitted that he had nothing to show for nearly 13 seasons in Europe and had fathered three kids with three different women.

Among these women is Mary Mubaiwa, who was his wife for four years. Mubaiwa is now married to General Constantine Chiwenga, the commander of the Zimbabwe Defence Forces.

“All along I was just enjoying myself and never made any investments. (Taimbofara zvedu). I hope to start something this year,” he said.

“I am not planning to marry anytime soon because I have failed before and all the women I have lived with say I am arrogant. Maybe the problem is that I am not used to company since I started living alone in Poland at a very young age
