Peter Ndlovu ignores Gumede funeral

Former Warriors striker, Peter “Nsukuzonke” Ndlovu ignored the passing of the late football administrator, Ndumiso Gumede.


Ngumede died few days ago after he suffered from a short illness.


Following his passing, hundreds took to social media to mourn the death of the late president of Highlanders Football Club.


Football legends, players mourned Gumede. Some of the legends and players went to bury Gumede at his homestead in Inyathi.


“Yesterday we laid to rest the late great legendary football administrator, the incredibly gentle giant & pure son of @HighlanderBosso Yours Truly, Ndundu, Ndumiso Emmanuel Gumede at Inyathi Mission Cemetery. Gone but will never be forgotten @NduGumz RIP qhawe lethu,” posted Ezra Sibanda.


However, among the absentees of the people who never sent condolence messages to the Gumede family is Peter Ndlovu.


Meanwhile, President Emmerson Mnangagwa sent his condolence message to the Gumede family following the death of former football administrator.


In his condolence address, Mnangagwa recognised the late administrator’s works in the football fraternity, he said.


“I received with grief and sadness news of the tragic and unexpected demise yesterday of Cde Ndumiso Gumede after a short illness. A sports administrator of distinction and a veteran teacher, the late Cde Gumede will be remembered by many for transforming the popular game of football through his competent leadership and professional administration of the iconic Highlanders Club, and when he served on the ZIFA board soon after our independence,” Mnangagwa said.
