Thousands of people thronged the streets of Bulawayo to witness the funeral procession and public send off for legendary Zimbabwe and Highlanders striker Adam Ndlovu who died in a tragic car crash this past Sunday.
More pictures will be added to the album as they come……………
Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai, Speaker of Parliament Lovemore Moyo, Minister of Water Resources Development and Management Sam Sipepa Nkomo visited Adam Ndlovu’s house to console his family.
According to radio legend Ezra ‘Thisa’ Sibanda “tens of thousands of people lined up the streets, singing and chanting the departed legend’s name and the atmosphere was terrific. Analysts believe the crowd surpassed the late Vice President, Father Zimbabwe Joshua Nkomo’ s funeral procession.”
“People were singing, others crying and some whistling, blowing trumpets, lining up on both sides of the Luveve road up to the stadium. A service was held in the stadium, speaker after speaker sang praises and said everything good about the people’s warrior, how humble and tolerant he was.
“It was a very moving and touching ceremony with Highlanders legends led by the emotional Douglas Mloyi paying tribute to this great son of Zimbabwe.
Two buses loaded with Dembare fans arrived for the funeral, soccer players of yesteryear, today’s and people from all walks of life, different political parties, various religious groups and the public in general were all gathered at Adamski’ house.
“Never seen so much unity amongst Zimbabweans and this is proof that Adam was the people’s man. Every province of Zimbabwe is represented, People from all over Africa and Europe all landed to pay their last respects. Saturday, the programme starts at 8.00am at Amphitheatre, see you there!” Sibanda said.
