The Young Entrepreneurs Association of Zambia sat down interview with Zimbabwean multi-millionaire and current President of the Zimbabwe Football Association Dr. Philip Chiyangwa for an exclusive interview.

YEA: Dr. Chiyangwa what made you decide to run for the presidency of your Football Club?

Dr. Chiyangwa: Zimbabwean Football had gone down and people needed to look forward to having a happy football generation. I saw myself as the best candidate and I believe I will repay the nation with splendid work. I see my as having the best players on the continent and with the right support the team can achieve a lot.

YEA: Dr Chiyangwa when did you start your business and how did you start?

Dr. Chiyangwa: I started business as a young man 35 years ago. In business you consistently need to look forward to grooming yourself. You have to be honest, realistic and focused. I consider myself to be a living legend.

YEA: What type of business are you invested in?

Dr. Chiyangwa: I make most of my money from real estate. I buy and sell property. I have several properties including hotels, some which are under construction and I also own shopping centers. I also own one of the biggest engineering firms in Zimbabwe.

YEA: We hear you own a lot of luxury cars, what can you tell us about that?

Dr. Chiyangwa: I own a huge number of vehicles, I have a Rolls Royce, Bugatti, Transformer Limousine, Mercedes GL 63 and several Mercedes Benz vehicles. I had a 20 seater jet, I sold it. I want to buy another one which is bigger so that I could be carrying my football team.

YEA: Whats your advice to our Football Association of Zambia President Andrew Kamanga?

Dr. Chiyangwa: Andrew needs to improve from great Kalu. He should carry on Kalusha Bwalya’s Legacy. He should translate his business into the game.

YEA: What advice would you give Young Entrepreneurs Association of Zambia.

Dr. Chiyangwa: Have respect, Ask yourself, Why are you poor? Is it because of the Laws? Repeal the Laws to suit the wants and needs of the youth. In 1994 I formed the Affirmative Action Group whose aim was to advocate and defend the blacks it was aimed at stopping the execution of properties by the whites against the blacks.

YEA: Thank you very much again sir, It’s a great honor to meet with you.

  3. Point of correction. Zimbabwe has not been using the Zim Dollar since 2008. They actually use the US Dollar. About Chiyangwa being multi-millionare, I cannot comment. His networth is not officially known, even in Zimbabwe. Owning te largest company in a non-performing economy does not speeak much about the company.

    While I do not know much about Zambian football, I think Chiyangwa is the wrong person to advice Zambia on how they can improve their soccer. For one Zimbabwe football is not even professionally run( managed like a chicken house). Ask him if there is any sound progessional sponsorship in the football in the association. Talk of the women soccer, its even worse.

    Lasty, I do not know when Chiyangwa started owning the NAtional team ( to the ppoint of calling it his team). This is why he want to byu a perosnal jet to transport his personal team.

    I concur to the fact that this was an interview from association. After all I did not expect them to assk him about soccer but more business issues.
