AFCON 2019 Super-fan Alvin Zhakata Stuck In Cameroon, Lives In Streets

AFCON 2019 Super-fan Alvin Zhakata Stuck In Cameroon, Lives In Streets

Warriors super-fan, Alvin “Aluvah” Zhakata is reported to be still stuck in Cameroon, living on the streets of Yaounde, more than two months after the delayed 2021 AFCON finals ended.

He was set to return home in February but was forced to abandon the trip after he was told at the airport in Yaounde, that he had some outstanding bills to pay.

Since then, according to the reports, he has been living on the Yaounde streets.

A correspondent for the authoritative website, Kigoum Wandji, interviewed him this week and indicated that Aluvah is having a very hard time. He said in the interview conducted in the backyard of the Arenah Hotel. He said:

I’m exhausted. I’m starting to get depressed. God only knows if I will return to my country alive.

Aluvah who is the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) super-fan was evicted from Arenah Hotel for “unpaid bills.”

The report said the Zimbabwean national has been squatting at the back of this establishment located in the Olembe district, not far from the stadium that hosted the opening and final of the CAN 2021 in Cameroon.

The report further says that Aluvah who collapsed after the clash between Malawi and Morocco has lung disease and is afraid that he will never see his family again.

Alvin Zhakata, a freelance Zimbabwean sports consultant, arrived in Cameroon and took up residence at the Arenah Hotel in Yaoundé on 15 January.

When Zimbabwe was eliminated, the Zimbabwean delegation left Cameroon on 22 January after paying all its hotel bills but Alvin Zhakata chose to stay to watch the final scheduled for February 6.

He faced challenges in settling his bill and Cameroon Football Federation boss, Samuel Eto’o had to intervene and pay for Aluvah.

Zhakata was then due to leave Cameroon on 2 February but, once at the airport, he was told that it was required that he pay a penalty of 387 euros.

He did not have the money so he returned to the hotel and since then, accommodation and nutrition bills have piled up.

Alvin Zhakata owes the Arenah Hotel 1500 euros and he must also pay new penalties for his plane ticket of around 472 euros.

For your own information Tatelicious is a Father of certain child in Harare, the mother was once a maid at Tatelicious parents house back then.
As for the term Hermaphrodite, that's the correct definition of addressing Tatelicious status.

Worzell Gummidge 3 months ago

No. Tatelicious is a Transgender Person, sometimes reffered to as a "Tranny or Dyke". Transgender is the "T" in LGBTQI. She was born a man, but later she underwent a ****ual change procedure to become a waman. She said she always felt like a woman, but had been assigned the wrong gender. She can never have children unless she adopts them.

Tatelicious is both male and female at the same time, a Hermaphrodite.In case you didn't know. Those guys take care of each other.

To be honest, this guy has serious issues! He should grow up and be realistic! Where was he going without enough money for the trip? Let alone with his heart condition! Doesn't he have better things to do? Unless maybe it was all a money making gamble he made hoping the publicity would open up opportunities! Aakutinyadzisa manje!

wen he prefered to wait for the final, he had a team he wanted to watch up the finals and it was not Zim, so he should shift his focus to that country for help, he siezed to be ours.

One thing that i learnt when i arrived in South Africa back in 2017 is that nobody owes you anything in this world and to never EVER go somewhere without enough funds people are not so loving out there.....

That being said our footballers who were being supported by this guy can do something to bring him back home.....

Zimbabweans in the diaspora can contribute for a dead body to come home but a living Zimbabwean can struggle and people will actually discuss as if it's something good

In this life NEVER laugh at someone because of their current situation
