Didier Drogba urges action on child road deaths in memory of Zenani

Didier Drogba, the Chelsea FC striker and Ivory Coast soccer international, has endorsed the Zenani Campaign and called for action to reduce child road deaths and injuries.

Drogba, who will be part of Chelsea's team for the UEFA Champions League final against Bayern Munich at the Allianz Stadium tomorrow, took time out of an important week to give his support to the campaign established in memory of Zenani Mandela. A friend of the Mandela family, Didier Drogba was close to Zenani, who died in a road crash in 2010. But the football star, a philanthropist in his native Ivory Coast, is also well aware of the wider dangers facing young people on the roads in Africa, and across the world, and urged greater efforts to make roads safe: “I support the Zenani Campaign because far too many children are being killed on the roads. This is a very important campaign. We need action now to save lives."
