    Rest in peace my brother... You'll surely be missed by all who played with you, worked with you and those you've coached. The world is surely a poorer place without you. Go well and rest peacefully. To Mrs Biemba and the family, robalang ka ntho madi a tshologa. You have lost a humble husban and father.
