Malawi football legend Chancy Gondwe graduates as pastor
Former Malawi football national team star Chancy ‘Viny’ Gondwe has fulfilled his dream of becoming a pastor after completing a three years diploma course.
The ex-Big Bullets star graduated with a diploma at Assemblies of God School of Theology in Lilongwe.
Gondwe who is a National Aids Commission (NAC) ambassador on ‘protect the goal’ project said it was a dream come true to be a pastor after years of footballing career abroad.
His career hit the rock after bad behaviour that resulted in him being poor.
Gondwe decided to take up a theological course in Bible and theology to help preach the word of God through sports.
“It is a dream come true to be a pastor and now I can fulfill my ambition as a pastor,” said Gondwe.
Meanwhile, Gondwe wants to form street football teams in Zomba, Mzuzu and Lilongwe.
“We want to use football to transform the lives of minibus touts, vendors and street children,” said the former Malawi football national team star.
He managed to lure a group of over 40 youngsters drawn from the Blantyre streets into forming a football team called Pentecostal Street Giants for Christ.
