In a touching show of camaraderie Highlanders Football Club supporters chipped in with cash and resources at yesterday’s function to commemorate the fourth annivessary of the road accident that claimed the lives of nine DeMbare fans.
On the 11th of June 2016, the club lost nine of their fans in a road accident in Battlefields as they travelled to watch their team in a league encounter against Chapungu at Ascot in 2016.
And as Dynamos fans handed over food hampers to families of the deceased and survivors at the club offices at the National Sports Stradium, Highlanders fans in Harare represented by Tawanda Mudzengi were on hand to deliver their cash and resources to the bereaved families.
Dynamos vice-chairman Moses Shumba was naturally elated at the gesture by the Bosso fans.
“To have Highlanders supporters rallying behind this initiative is a great sign that our football is growing.
“We should only be enemies for 90 minutes and beyond that, we embrace each other as brothers and sisters. I salute you Highlanders fans.”
For the first time since the initiative came into place three years ago, survivors of the crash also received food hampers.
