South Africa-based former Malawi national football team star midfielder, Kennedy ‘Senator’ Malunga, has introduced an online application called Crowd1 which he believes would help Malawians improve their financial standing.
According to crowd1.com, the application offers a unique business proposition with the intention to sell other companies’ digital products.
Malunga said he was introduced to the application by his South African business partners and wanted to see Malawians joining in reaping from the application’s rewards.
The former Be Forward Wanderers star said he had already introduced Crowd1 to over 40 people in the country and was targeting 1,000 before end of the year.
“I want to help my fellow Malawians to sustain themselves and their families. I have earned quite a lot from this application myself and I want others to benefit as well,” he said.
Malunga said he was planning to return to Malawi after the lifting of South Africa’s lockdown and train more people on how to use the application.
“My primary interest is my fellow retired football footballers. I know that most of them are struggling with life and need a helping hand. I will be in the country to train more people on how to earn income from Crowd1,” he said.
Malunga said he was in the country about three months ago to introduce the application to members who are set to get paid next month through either their bank accounts, bit coin or gift codes.
Former Nyasa Big Bullets defender, Mzee Josam, said the initiative would help alleviate former players’ challenges.
“This is a welcome development. Not all of us are doing well in life as former players. I therefore welcome this initiative,” Josam said.
