28 April 2020 – Bongani Khumalo says he donated his full salary “from the bottom of my heart” to buy food parcels for the needy during the coronavirus outbreak.
The 33-year-old centre-back has enjoyed an illustrious career, playing for the likes of Tottenham Hotspur and Doncaster Rovers as well as Bafana Bafana before heading back to former side SuperSport.
Khumalo enjoyed a short spell with Wits before returning to Matsatsantsa, for the third time.
In a bid to help those most in need, Khumalo told City Press the reason behind his generosity.
He said: “I have decided to donate my full salary to buy food parcels (for the needy) and I am doing this from the bottom of my heart.
“I am in a fortunate position to do this and I hope to reach out to 300 families during this difficult time, while also paying homage to Eswatini, where my father was born.
“I am doing this in my personal capacity; this is not for personal glory.”
Khumalo handed out 200 food parcels in Pretoria West on Thursday (23 April 2020).
