Two days ago, Mane extended his helping hand again by opening up a new mini stadium, State De Bambali, in his hometown. The venue is on top of the public hospital and secondary school he's already funded in Bambali years past.

“Why would I want 10 Ferraris, 20 diamond watches, or two planes? What will these objects do for me and for the world?
