Lecturer donates wheelchair to disabled football coach after Citi TV’s documentary

A lecturer at the University of Mines and Technology (UMaT), Tarkwa, Dr. Frank Boateng, has donated a brand new wheelchair to James Eduful, the disabled football coach who was the subject of a Citi TV documentary last month.

This follows Citi TV’s airing of the documentary titled “Coach Sympathy: Tactics on a Wheelchair”, which focused on the work of the physically challenged football coach who runs a colts football team in Kumasi.

Dr. Boateng, who teaches at the Department of Management in the Faculty of Integrated Management Sciences, said he was touched by Coach Sympathy’s story and wanted to contribute to making his movement easier.

“Coach Sympathy’s story has inspired all of us and to be such a positive influence on the lives of many young footballers is fascinating.

“I noticed he complained about his current wheelchair and I hope this new one can help make his work a lot easier,” Dr. Boateng said.

Coach Sympathy’s inspiring story captured the hearts of Ghanaians after it aired on Citi TV on July 30.


When James Eduful was young, his dream was to play football but life happened. However, he decided to stay on course and live his dream, this time, through others.

Follow this story by Fentuo Tahiru Fentuo as he looks into the life of this young man whose life is a motivation for all of us.
