A wave of excitement swept through Victoria Falls Primary School yesterday as the colossal figure of ‘The BEAST’, Tendai Mutawarira appeared in the quad. Eager faces peered out of the classrooms to get a better view of Tendai as he strode around the school.
The main purpose of his visit was to surprise Grade 2 pupil Kundai Munyenyiwa with a cake. It was a moment to remember as Tendai presented an ecstatic Kundai with a birthday cake fashioned in the shape of a Sharks rugby ball. The Beast’s deep booming voice could be heard as he sang happy birthday alongside Kundai’s classmates.
Some of the kids had an opportunity to interact and take photos with the Beast. Among them were the Under 8 rugby team known as the Victoria Falls Thunder cubs. They could not contain their excitement as the beast got in on their huddle and joined in their heart-warming war cry.
Lastly Beast took some of the children for a short rugby lesson where he explained the fundamentals of rugby before he said goodbye to an awestruck group of children.
