Orlando Pirates Legend Graduated With PhD Dr The University Of Pretoria

Orlando Pirates is an iconic club in South Africa for what they were able to achieve since their inception. This is the same club that was the first to win the CAF Champions league in the country and the footballers who were part of that squad went down as legends. This was the penultimate achievement and only Mamelodi Sundowns has been replicate this. It is always important to acknowledge history and the footballers who came before and contributed to taking the brand to another level.

This reitred footballers was part of the squad of players who brought the trophy home back in 1995. He went on to make a success of himself after football, however he has since been hampered by a situation he could've prepared for. This legend was reported to be partially blind back in 2020 and he is yet to recover.

Robert Marawa took to social media to share pictures as he shared that Dr Bernard 'Shoes' Lushozi recently graduated. He achieved a PhD from the University of Pretoria in Learning Support Guidance & Counseling. This is definitely a huge achievement and could paint a picture to the upcoming generation about how to manage life after football.

Marawa recently hosted Shoes on his show Marawa Sports Worldwide where he described his struggles after issues with eyesight. He was previously working as a school principal, however he has since been forced to step back as a result of his medical condition. This has been unfortunate on Dr Lushozi as he was worked hard in ensuring the he is educated and has shown passion of working within the education industry.

Fans shared messages of congratulations and went on to wish him well on his health. This is definitely heartbreaking, however there's not much that could be done. Dr Lushozi has shared that his condition has prompted to use his hearing more in order to keep with football and all things around his football career. He can certainly serve as an inspiration for the next generation.
