Tributes pour in for Noel Mkandawire
Tributes are pouring in for former Civo United and Escom United international forward, Noel Mkandawire.
The former striker died in Mzuzu on Saturday aged 38 after succumbing to a lengthy liver related illness.
Civil Sporting Club General Secretary, Thom Makiwa, said the club, which emerged from the ashes of relegated Civo United, is shocked by Mkandawire’s passing.
“As a team, we are really saddened. He was a player who dedicated most of his time to the club and we will live to remember him,” he said.
“After his playing career ended, he also helped the team as a member of the coaching panel.”
Northern Region Football Association General Secretary, Masiya Nyasulu, whose association drummed up financial support for Mkandawire when he was hospitalised, described his death as a loss to the country.
“He was an important player. He was talented and he was a good example to up-and-coming players. He was disciplined and friendly,” Nyasulu added.
Late Mkandawire was born on December 25, 1978 at Euthini in Mzimba District.
Meanwhile, burial arrangements are not yet known.
