Speaking to the association’s website www.zifa.org.zw, Chiyangwa paid tribute to club president Farai Jere and chairperson Lewis Uriri for their leading roles in the remarkable run which saw the club winning a league title after 11 years. Chiyangwa said:
May I take pleasure to congratulate CAPS United FC president, Farai Jere, its club chairperson Advocate Lewis Uriri, the CAPS United board and the club’s multitude of fans for winning the coveted Castle Lager Premier League championship for the 2016 season. It is remarkable that they have won their fifth league title in the club’s history and special mention goes to the technical department, especially the head coach Lloyd Chitembwe for making history by becoming the first CAPS United son, to win the league both as a player and as coach.
He also urged the club to excel in next year’s CAF Champions League.
