Malawians on social media dominated their pages in Friday with photos of nine-year-old son, Tazizwa as OMBC.

Tazizwa, a son of former Justice and Constitutional Affairs minister Raphael Kasambara, outclassed 19-contestants in various drills such as football skills, discipline and English proficiency to win the Official Match Ball Carrier (OMBC) competition organised KIA Motors at St. Andrew’s International Primary School in Blantyre through their distribution partners HTD Malawi Limited.

Tazizwa, a year-five pupil at St. Andrew’s Primary, said he has always wanted to become a football player. He said he believes the chance of rubbing shoulders with the best players in the world as OMBC in Russia will give him the much-needed motivation to pursue his dream.
