Dynamos Football Club has lost yet another decorated legend, Simon Sachiti.
Sachiti passed away Saturday morning in Harare aged 75.
In a statement, the Harare giants media officer, Yvonne Mangunda, described Sachiti’s death as a great loss to the football fraternity.
“Dynamos Football Club joins the family of one of the Club’s greatest sons, the late Simon Sachiti and the nation at large in mourning his untimely passing on today. This great loss comes barely a month after Misheck ‘Scania’ and David ‘Yogi’ Mandigora were taken from our midst . We continue losing the illustrious sons of Zimbabwean football. The late Sachiti was a rare gem in the star -studded generation of the 70s, a generation that turned Dynamos into an indomitable football juggernaut.”
Dynamos appreciated Sachiti’s contribution as both a player and administrator.
“He was a pleasant character who gave his all to the Glamour Boys both as a player and administrator. What hurts the most is the fact that the Club’s luminaries are being taken away from our midst at a time when the Club is preparing to put up glitzy and memorable 60th anniversary celebrations in 2023. The Club shall however see to it that the Roll of Honour for all who made Dynamos Football Club the flagship of Zimbabwean football since 1963, shall decorate our Hall of Fame. We say to Mdara Sachiti, Go well our Mdara. You ran your race very well,” said Mangunda.
Sachiti also had a stint as the Glamour Boys Secretary General.
