30 JULY 2020
Highlander FC has learnt with shock and disbelief the untimely death of former Premier Soccer League (PSL) Chief Executive Officer Mr Chris Sambo.
Death has robbed our football of a dedicated steward and servant of the game, who served Zimbabwean football with distinction.
The demise of Sambo is a blow to current and aspiring football administrators who still had a lot to learn from a man who, despite having not been heavily involved in the running of the national football, was always available to advise.
On behalf of the entire Highlanders fraternity, my family and myself, I would like to take this opportunity to convey our heartfelt condolences to his immediate family, and the whole nation in general.
May those he left behind, find comfort from the Lord in this difficult time. I would like to assure them that we are in this together, as we are all trying to come to terms with this shocking development.
May the gentle soul of the great football giant find peace.
K. Mhlophe, Club Executive Chairman.
