You were my brother from another mother Number 7,Kademo wedu..We won so many things together bro.We celebrated so many times together.Remember us flapping our wings, flying like birds, celebrating every goal?We hung out together so many times.We sang together so many times at the back seat of our bus.We did so many things together .
You remained a loving brother even after moving to England .All those football equipment you would organise for my academy.The long chats about football we would have.
I just do not have so many things to say right now ,save to say that ndarwadziwa bro ..
