But despite spending a lot on expensive and impressive vehicles, it appears the footie has refused to be deterred by riches as he continues to give back to the community.

In 2019, he established a foundation that is named after him known as the Marvelous Nakamba Foundation (MNF).

According to the Zimbabwean international, MNF was purposely formed as a way of giving back to the community using the power of sport and education.

To date, the foundation has paid school fees for over 1 500 pupils countrywide.

It also hosted its inaugural under-17 boy’s invitational tournament in June 2022 at White City Stadium in Bulawayo.

Mutare’s Majesa Academy were crowned the champions after beating Highlanders U-17s 2-1.

The Warriors star, whose foundation also pays schools for over 1 000 students across the country, confirmed that the MNF Under-17 tournament will be an annual event.

Player of the tournament Prosper Padera (Majesa captain) and Highlanders’ senior team 16-year-old Prince Ndlovu are set to travel to Turkey for trials in December courtesy of the MNF as a result of their impressive performance at the inaugural under 17 tournament.

Recently, MNF also officially announced the launch of an inaugural girls’ football tournament set to be held in November at a venue yet to be announced.

Owing to his generous heart, interestingly, his foundation is in the process of building a state-of-the-art sports complex in Mahatshula suburb in Bulawayo.

Construction work at the site is reportedly already underway.

Even though the camera-shy Nakamba is a footballer his complex is set to house sporting facilities for different disciplines.

Five disciplines namely; tennis, basketball, volleyball, swimming and football are said to be expected at the sporting complex.
