Zim football legend hamid Dhana dies

Former Dynamos, Arcadia United and Black Rhinos midfielder Hamid Dhana has died.

Dhana succumbed to colon cancer yesterday at his Braeside home in Harare over the weekend. He was 61. Mrs. Dhana spoke about the legendary footballer’s fight for his life:

He was diagnosed three years ago and could have had the cancer for a little longer but, because he was active, we only knew about it three years ago.He fought a good fight and fought to the end. He was a soldier and a fighter. He was a loving person and was loved by the community and was a good football player

Fellow legendary footballers who played with and/or knew Hamid Dhana have mourned one of their own. Speaking to the Herald several footballers who spoke to the publication expressed their sadness over the departed footballer’s passing.

David “Yogi” Mandigora said:

I can’t say much at the moment. It’s a sad day. We got along very well. He was a very nice guy and I was disappointed when he left for Black Rhinos. We played together at Dynamos and the national team.

Charles Mabika dedicated yesterday ‘s match between Dynamos and Highlanders to Dhana and Madinda Ndlovu who was said to be under the weather in Botswana.

It is a shock to me because he seemed to be on the mend. Football is a loser. He was one of the finest midfielders this country has ever produced, He was a jovial fellow. I remember him during the Warriors’ trips, he was always cracking jokes. My deepest condolences to the Dhana family, his football legacy will live forever

Muzukuru’s close friend Charlie Jones said:

It’s very sad to lose a legend of his calibre. We will sadly miss him. He was always a gentleman and a close friend.

Mourners are gathered at 4 Nightingale Close in Braeside.
