They say charity begins at home, but whoever said that must have forgotten to mention that it shouldn’t stay there.
One of the wealthiest footballers in the country, Kaizer Chiefs’ Khama Billiat, in a bid to give back to the community, started a foundation named after him, which has so far donated sports equipment, laptops, and food to the underprivileged both in Zimbabwe and South Africa.
What has triggered a lot of debate however is the 29-year-old former Ajax Cape Town winger’s decision to extend his hand to the needy in South Africa before the Rainbow Nation’s coronavirus-enforced 21-day lockdown which started on Friday.
Some feel he should have also extended his hand to Zimbabwe since supposedly South Africa is better equipped and more prepared for this crisis, while others defended him for sticking to the Rainbow Nation because that is where his bread is buttered hence it’s logical for it to benefit more.
