Ndoro Turns To God After Going Blind

Former Orlando Pirates striker Tendai Ndoro says his life has changed since he ‘turned to God’ after losing his eyesight.

Ndoro sparked widespread concern across South Africa and Zimbabwe after shocking images surfaced on social media of the former Zimbabwe marksman looking frail while training with a local club.

It represented a stark contrast to the incredible physique he held during his peak where his impressive goalscoring ability in the South African top-flight earned him a lucrative move to the Middle East.

Reports in Zimbabwean media also revealed the player had been embroiled in a messy divorce that left him broke and amid all the chaos in his personal life, Ndoro says he’s seeking the help of the almighty during his plight.

“I am very grateful, and my life has since changed after I turned to God. There was a lot of hearsay concerning my life where nobody could confirm with me,” he said, as per The Herald.

“I became blind for three weeks but with the support and prayers from my pastor, Kudakwashe Jose, everything has changed for the better as I can now see.”

Ndoro represented Mpumalanga Black Aces, Orlando Pirates, Ajax Cape Town and Highlands Park during his time in Mzansi after arriving from Chicken Inn back in 2013.

He scored 42 goals and registered 16 assists in 139 games for the four respective clubs across all competitions.
