Zungu pays tribute to former Usuthu chairman


AmaZulu FC president Sandile Zungu has revealed that he is devastated by the passing of former chairman of the club in earlier 90’s, David Dlamini.

Dlamini who led the club during the time that Clive Barker was head coach passed away on Saturday after a long battle with diabetes.

Zungu said he was planning to visit Dlamini when he heard about his passing, which left him very disturbed.

“They will tell you at the office, I was planning to visit him. The political unrest which was characterized by looting and destruction of property interrupted my visit,” Zungu stated.

“These are disturbing news, he is one of the people who played a huge role in the development of AmaZulu FC.

“I admire his contribution to the club, he is a role model for me and I’ll work hard to be on his level, I pass my condolences to the family.”

Dlamini passed away at the age of 86 and will be remembered for leading Usuthu when they won the Coca-Cola Cup in 1992.
