The remains of the late staunch Dynamos fan, Freddy “Pasuwa” Mugadza have finally been brought to Zimbabwe, seven months after his death in the United States.
Mugadza died suddenly in Atlanta, United States, on April 10, at the age of 42 years.
Family spokesperson, Stephen Maphosa told NewZimbabwe.com on Saturday that the family has suffered double tragedy as Freddy’s brother, Phillip, died in August while they were waiting to repatriate’s his body. He said:
I can confirm that the body of the late Freddy Mugadza has arrived and as a family, we are relieved and, at the same time, we are also sad.
It’s been a very difficult time for us as a family. As we were doing our best efforts to bring back home Freddy, under the most trying of circumstances because of the outbreak of Covid-19, we encountered another tragedy in the family following the death of his brother (Phillip) in August.
As a family, we are going to meet Sunday evening to map the way forward. Burial is likely to take place next week.
Indications are that Freddy would be buried next to his brother, Phillip Mugadza, at Glen Forest Cemetery next Saturday.
