The Zimbabwe Football Association (ZIFA) would like to convey its heartfelt condolences to the Ngirande family & friends, Zimbabwe Prisons and Correctional Services, Correctional Queens Football Club, and the local football family following the passing on of Correctional Queens FC Team Manager Amai Otilia Ngirande.
We can not imagine the grief everyone whose life she touched is going through in this moment of bereavement.
Her sudden departure leaves a void in the women’s game, for which she invested time and effort towards the recognition of women’s football teams within ZPCS and in the nation as a whole.
The gradual growth of local women’s football over the years stems from the desire embodied by her and other paragons of women’s sport.
As we bid farewell to her, we cherish the legacy she has left for us to behold and keep alive. Her legacy lives eternal. It is left to us to continue uplifting the game she loved so much.
May her dear soul rest in eternal peace.
