"We had Burhani in the just-ended FA Cup tournament.
He was in good health. While on our return journey he started complaining of headache. When we reached Biharamulo town he was temporarily admitted to the Biharamulo District Designated Hospital (DDH) before he was taken to the Kagera Sugar Medical hospital.
On Friday morning his condition worsened and we hired an airplane and he was rushed to Bugando Medical Centre for further medical examination and treatment. Unfortunately at around 2.00 a.m. today morning he passed away.
It is a great loss," he said tears running down his cheeks.
