Mudhara Mhunga died on Monday aged 84 following a long battle with diabetes and hypertension.

Church service will be held at the family home at 9 am and burial should be held by lunchtime at Mangwandi Cemetery.
We have been comforted by so many people from the football fraternity and business circles who came to mourn with the family, friends and relatives.
Indeed he was a man of the people and he will carry that gift to his grave.
Tavaruva has been hailed by former “Yuna Yuna” coach Luke “Vahombe” Masomere who said the late football administrator fully supported the club with his finances.
Former Masvingo United midfielder Billiard “Bomber” Muchenje said Mudhara Mhunga would visit the team while in camp especially on Sundays soon after attending the church service and this would boost the players’ morale.
