YAOUNDÉ — African Football legend and the president of the Cameroonian Football Federation Samuel Eto’o has come to the assistance of Zimbabwean super fan Alvin ‘Aluvha’ Zhakata who is in hospital in Cameroon.
Aluvha collapsed after the Africa Cup of Nations clash between Malawi and Morocco last week but could not afford the expenses to allow further medical tests to be conducted on him.
Some African journalists in Cameroon led a campaign to have CAF help out Alvin Zhakata to no avail but Eto’o later heeded the call.
“The president of Fecafoot (Cameroon Football Association), Mr Samue Etoo Fils, has paid my hospital bill, and footed all costs for medical tests and everything.
“How can I not be grateful. How can I not heal. Will give further updates later. Help me thank Samuel Eto’o,” tweeted Aluvha.
Aluvha who made history by traveling from Cape to Cairo by road for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations edition has been getting conciliatory messages across the continent over his condition.
