Lost in translation – Premier League Newcomer Chippa Mpengesi

In an exclusive interview with Premier League newcomer boss Chippa Mpengesi, a journalist asks the wrong question…
Journalist: “Okay, is it true that your the sole bread-winner in your family?”
Mpengesi: “It’s not the first time I’m hearing this accusation, it’s been going on for some time now. It must be from my enemies who want to tarnish my image. I can tell you one thing, I’ve never entered a bread competition. I will sue anyone who says I’m a bread-winner, including you journalists.”

    “So, I can just imagine how thrilled the editors of the Sunday Times were when a couple of their reporters presented them with the story of Chippa Mpengesi, who, two years ago, paid next to nothing for a no-hoper soccer club that has just qualified to play in the national premier soccer league.

    I know you’re expecting me to turn on the satire at this stage, but I’m not going to. I simply love Mpengesi’s story. Working as a security guard, he took it upon himself to approach Pick n Pay and offer to get back their trolleys that he had seen littering Cape Town’s townships. The company obviously wasn’t going to hand over a fat contract to this unknown then and there but it did give him a letter of sorts.

    With this he went around collecting trolleys and handing them back to Pick n Pay for a fee.

    He was in business and soon started all sorts of enterprises, as long as he could make a buck.

    Today his businesses employ 3000 people and he can (almost) claim to be in the same league as Chelsea boss Roman Abramovich.

    You don’t need to be a trained rocket scientist – or to have even the foggiest idea what a Higgs boson looks like – to make a buck out of rounding up supermarket trolleys. You just need to have what Mpengesi clearly has – a dream and plenty of drive.”
