“The reason Tanzania called for foreign intervention is simply because they want to exchange knowledge, build relationships, influence people to come and invest in their country in terms of building infrastructure, academies,” said Khumalo.

“And they even told me if I want to build a Doctor Khumalo academy, I’m more than welcome to do so as they will give me the land to build it on. It has been said to different individuals who are here because these guys have a vision and want to get things sorted out in the next five to 10 years.

“You can tell that these guys are heading somewhere, and they are making sure that their football is going to grow. A country with less resources than we have back home, that’s alarming. There were no political points or topics throughout this summit as all their efforts are on developing and improving their football,” added Khumalo.
