The Zimbabwe Football Association assembly, executive committee, and secretariat convey heartfelt condolences to the Chigumbura family following the death of sekuru Rodgers Chigumbura.
Mr Chigumbura was one of the pioneers of the Rhodesia area zones leadership the area zones was the backbone of the Rhodesia National Football Association as they fed quality players into the national league.
He worked with the likes of Cornelius Bganya, Passius Masunda, and other football aldermen to help see our area zones provide the community leagues which were sponsored by corporates.. from the 60s all the way into independence.
He was a very resourceful honorary member who would inspire the Zifa leadership to serve the family of football with distinction.
Honorary members are a very strategic pillar of Zimbabwe football as they are reservoirs of institutional memory and good governance.
The late Chigumbura worked with leadership from the days of the late John Madzima and the subsequent ZIFA presidents.
May his dear soul rest in eternal peace.
Hamba kahle baba. Fambai zvakanaka baba. Go well our father
