BFA President appeals for prayers for the Gumare disaster

Yesterday, our football family was hit by tragedy that has left us mourning. Six players of Gumare United football team that was travelling to Sehithwa for a constituency football game lost their lives in a car accident. The accident happened in Tsao, a village between Gumare and Sehithwa.

The news of the loss of the six players has been a heavy blow and substantial loss to BFA. The six players were among the self-determined players eager to sharpen their football skills to eventually be counted among a pool of the nation’s surplus of polished players awaiting a call for elite football.

While the constituency league is not part of mainstream football, all of us belong to one big football family. The BFA office has set out to secure all information relating to the accident and will continuously share with you all.

I call upon all of us within the football family to provide a shoulder for the respective families of the deceased as well as the hospitalised to lean on during this tough time. May the souls of the departed rest in eternal peace.

With deepest sympathy,
BFA President, Maclean Letshwiti
