Macauley Bonne Close To Acquiring A Zimbabwe-an Passport Ahead Of Afcon Qualifiers



The Zimbabwe Football Association (ZIFA) has said that the steps to get Macauley Bonne a Zimbabwean passport were now at an advanced stage after the Zimbabwe Sports Minister, Kirsty Coventry chipped in to help.

The England-based, Zimbabwe Warriors striker, who plays for English Championship side, Charlton Athletic, was born in England to Zimbabwean parents and he has opted to play for Zimbabwe.

The topic has been ongoing since the start of 2019, ahead of the Africa Cup of Nations Tournament hosted in Egypt.

The draw to Bonne’s acquiring of a passport has been that, new Zimbabwean laws demand that he has to renounce his British citizenship first if he has to get a Zimbabwean passport.

Zimbabwe Warriors team manager Wellington Mpandare spoke to the news media in an interview, saying that he was positive of good results soon.

We have received support from the Minister of Sport (Kirsty Coventry), and we have taken the documents where they are supposed to be, and we are confident that something will happen in the coming days.’ said Mpandare.
