His Worship Solomon Mguni, the Mayor, Aldermen and Councillors, Town Clerk, Mr C Dube, Heads of Council Departments, Staff and residents of the City of Bulawayo have learnt with sadness of the passing on of the former footballer and Bulawayo City Football Club Board Member Ernest “Maphepha” Sibanda on Tuesday, 10 August 2021.
Sibanda has been a beacon in not only Bulawayo Football but Zimbabwe as a whole, having been a national team manager, Highlanders Chairman and in the past two years a Bulawayo City FC Board Member.
The City joins the Sibanda Family, Bulawayo and the Nation at large in mourning a football icon that contributed immensely to the growth and development of the sport nationally.
We will sorely miss his wealth of experience, his drive to see Bulawayo prosper in football and efforts in grassroot football development.
May his dear soul rest in peace.
He will be sorely missedALDERMAN S KHUMALO BOARD CHAIRPERSON
