Former Warriors striker Benjani Mwaruwari is searching for Zimbabwe’s next lethal striker.

The man formerly known as the ‘Undertaker’ has gone to the grassroots in Mberengwa on a talent scouting mission.

Benjani who was guest of honour at the Mberengwa West 2017 schools sports gala said he wants to give young people a chance to showcase their abilities through his academies.

The Former Warriors forward said he is on a mission to find the next Peter Ndlovu whom he wants to groom from an early age.

A brainchild of Mberengwa West legislator Dr Joram Gumbo, the three day sports gala is held every year.

25 primary schools and 9 secondary schools take part in different sporting disciplines.

Benjani also got time to mingle with youngsters who attended the event and presented soccer kits and balls.

The annual gala also attracts other well known players, former players and other personalities in Zimbabwean sport.
