FORMER Caps United coach Steve Kwashi, who died on Sunday, has been buried at the Glen Forest Cemetery in Harare.
The Zimbabwean football family this Tuesday bade farewell to veteran football coach, Steve “the Dude” Kwashi, who was buried at the Glen Forest Memorial Park in Harare, with a few family members in attendance in adherence to Covid-19 regulations.
Had it not been for Covid-19 protocols, the football fraternity would have thronged the cemetery to give a befitting send-off to the 1996 all-conquering CAPS United coach.
His son, Fungai Tostao Kwashi, who played under his father at Makepekepe, described him as a great coach.
I owe everything I have in my life to him, he was a great father, a great coach, he helped so many people, not only in our family but beyond, he was loved by people, he loved people he was a happy guy,he said.
According to his brother Kenneth Kwashi, ‘the Dude’ was very accommodative.
He was unique and played a role in both the young and old, especially in the football fraternity where he led Caps United to clinch their first title in 1996,said Kenneth.
Kwashi, who led Caps United to league glory in 1996, succumbed to Covid-19 related complications this Sunday.
