Ndlovu to be buried on Saturday



The late Adam Ndlovu will be laid to rest on Saturday in Bulawayo.

The place of the former Highlanders and Warriors striker’s burial has not been finalised yet as the family was still consulting on where the icon will be rested following, calls that he be declared a hero.

His elder brother Madinda Ndlovu said that though he can confirm the date of the burial, he can’t confirm the cemetery yet.

“What I can confirm to you is that following consultations within the family and the committee, we have decided that Adam be laid to rest on Saturday in Bulawayo. We cannot, however, state with certainty where exactly he will be buried because we have been following press reports that calls have been made for him to be declared a hero, so until then, we wait to be advised,” Madinda said.

There have been calls from football, political and civil organisations that the former Bosso, FC Kriens, SR Delemont, FC Zurich, Moroka Swallows, Dynamos and Free State Stars striker’s funeral service be held at Barbourfields Stadium, the venue that brought Adamski fame and fortune, and that it should be a hero’s funeral.

Zifa have asked government to award Ndlovu a hero’s funeral as he has contributed a lot to Zimbabwe’s football both at club level and national level. Zifa president Cuthbert Dube said that they want to honour Ndlovu in the best way possible.

“We have lost a hero and he deserves the respect of a hero,” Dube said.
