THE BURIAL of Warriors and Highlanders legend Adam Ndlovu has been slated for Bulawayo on Saturday.
Family spokesman Madinda said Tuesday that they are yet to decide on the place of burial – but there were indications the soccer icon might be laid to rest at the Lady Stanley Cemetery.
The cemetery is preserve for prominent members of the Bulawayo community, and Adam, viewed by many as a national football hero, might be honoured with a burial there.
It also emerged that Peter, who was seriously injured in the car crash that killed his brother, has finally been told of Adam’s passing.
Members of the public will be allowed to visit him from Wednesday at Mater Dei hospital where he is receiving treatment.
Madinda also highlighted that the Ndlovu family is yet to meet with Nomqhele Tshili's family, the 24-year-old lady who died with Adam.
Meanwhile, condolences continue to pour in.
Warriors manager Sharif Mussa said: "I am deeply saddened by the passing of Adam. It is a very big shock not only to me, but Zimbabwe as a whole and the football fraternity.
“He used to make Zimbabweans smile because of his play. Adam will be greatly missed. He imparted a legacy to our football. May God be with the family in the trying times. Best wishes to Peter. I hope he recovers soon."
The Sports and Recreation Commission (SRC) also paid its respects saying Adam had “distinguished himself as a great football player and an astute coach.”
“The SRC would like to express its heartfelt condolences to the Ndlovu family and the football fraternity and shares with them the loss of one of the greatest footballers ever to be produced in this country.
We pray that guardian angels watch over Peter and wish him a speedy recovery."
Former Manchester United goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel tweeted: "Sending my best wishes to Peter Ndlovu. I hope he recovers."
