Zimbabwe: Adam's Body for Barbourfiels, Luveve

THE body of soccer legend Adam Ndlovu will be taken to the grounds where he made his name as both a player and a coach at Barbourfields and Luveve before burial at Lady Stanley Cemetery in Bulawayo.

This was confirmed by the legendary Highlanders and Warriors striker's elder brother Madinda yesterday.

At a press conference held at Mater Dei Hospital where he had visited Peter Ndlovu in the company of Zifa chief executive officer Jonathan Mashingaidze and player agents' chairman Omega Sibanda, Madinda also briefed the media about Peter's progress following surgery in the morning.

"We have divided the programme into two. Today in the meeting we looked at a point where there will be several people we will have on board. So we decided to break (the programme) into two so that there is one for Friday and another for Saturday," said Madinda.

The body of Adam and mourners will leave Nyaradzo at 2pm tomorrow, drive past the family business MAP Brothers along Fort Street before proceeding past his club employers' offices along the same road.

From there the procession will take Sixth Avenue Extension and head to Luveve where in the space of a year, Adam managed to carve a niche for himself as one of the best motivators and tacticians in the land, coaching Chicken Inn.

They will then drive back to town along Luveve Road to Nyaradzo and then home.

"At home stakeholders like Zifa, PSL, Chicken Inn, Highlanders, will give speeches on Friday," said Madinda.
