He turned 30 on Saturday.
“I just want to thank the Lord for my birthday and everyone who wished me a happy birthday.”
“It was such a happy day as l spent it with my family.
“And l’m just grateful to God. For he is the one who made this day to come to pass,” he said.
“Yes l had to spend my birthday in lockdown because of the restrictions due to Covid-19 but the truth is l’m not usually an outgoing person.
“So yeah it was okay like that, l usually celebrate my birthday’s with my family and that’s what l did.
“Lockdown or no lockdown what’s important is the gift of life and l’m grateful for that.”
The former Hwange player says his birthday wish is that he heals fast and get on the pitch.
“I’m still far away from fitness so it’s my wish that l heal fast so that l can go back to do what l love doing which is playing football.
“I miss the beautiful game and can’t wait to start enjoying it.
“I’m working on my fitness though l still have a long way to go but l’m hopeful that l will be okay soon,” he said.
Rusike also took the chance to advise his fans and fellow Zimbabweans to stay safe during this time.
“Life is the greatest gift from God and I urge all Zimbabweans and the rest of the world to always stay hygiene , stay home and follow the rules set by our governments to fight this pandemic out of the picture.
“We know we might to meet with family and friends but if you love them you must maintain your social distance because we need them to be safe,” he said.
