WIFE to the late Dynamos Assistant Coach Biggie Zuze, Mrs Pinky Zuze, has described her late husband as loving and caring.
The late Biggie Zuze’s wife is devastated following the death of her husband who passed away at a local hospital in Harare this Thursday.
A visibly shaken Mrs. Zuze who was still in disbelief said words alone cannot express the pain she is feeling.
“I am deeply saddened by the death of my husband. He was a loving and caring family man, I didn’t expect this situation since he was not ill and neither does he have any medical history. I am shocked,” she mourned.
Son to the late DeMbare assistant coach, Biggie Zuze Jnr described his father’s death as a major blow to the family.
“My father was a kind and loving person and we looked up to him for many things. I am in deep pain right now. However, will have to accept God’s will but i am deeply saddened,” he said.
Meanwhile, Ngezi Platinum Stars Coach Rodwell Dhlakama says the death of Biggie Zuze is a big blow to the football fraternity.
In an interview with ZBC News this Friday, Ngezi Platinum Stars Coach Rodwell Dhlakama said the death of Zuze is a big blow to the local football fraternity, describing him as a professional coach and a teacher.
“Zuze was one of the most respected coaches to have come from this nation. He was a teacher and brother so we are at loss.”
At one time Zuze was assistant coach to Mandigora, Kallisto Pasuwa and Tonderayi Ndiraya. His successes include winning the Mbada Diamond cup in 2011 and the One Wallet Cup in 2016 with Triangle FC.
Zuze arrived at Dynamos in 1984 and formed a terrific combination with Jere before he formed a formidable partnership with Elvis “Chuchu” Chiweshe and Memory Mucherahowa.
Zuze won three championships in 1985, 1986 and 1989 and several trophies that include the BAT Rosebowl Rothmans shield, among others.
At the time of his death, Zuze was the assistant coach to Tonderai Ndiraya at the Glamour Boys.
He had been heavily involved in the planning for the start of the 2020 season, which has been put on hold because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Mourners are gathered at house number 1004 Stoneridge, in Harare.
Burial arrangements will be announced in due course.
