Editor — During the Heroes’ Day celebrations, Zimbabwe remembered the contributions made by both living and fallen heroes who sacrificed their lives for the nation.

Sports, especially football plays a major role in our day-to-day living, and the Government continues to invest in it each year.

During the Heroes’ Day celebrations, we also ought to cast our minds, salute and spare a moment and remember living legends like Peter Ndlovu, Benjani Mwaruari, Andy Flower, Kirsty Coventry, Charles Manyuchi, Bryon Black who continue to make the country proud on the sporting arena at both the regional and global stage.

Sadly there are other fallen sporting heroes who sacrificed blood and sweat for the sake of the nation.

They include captain Sandura Francis Shonhayi, Adam Ndlovu, Benjamin “Makanaky” Nkonjera, Watson Muhoni, Shingi Arlon Blessing “Yogo Yogo” Makunike, Gary Mashoko, Mercedes “Rambo” Sibanda and more. We fondly remember you!
