Former Highlanders midfielder Charles “The Chief” Chilufya has died.
The Zambian was part of the trailblazing Bosso team which won the league in 2002 under Eddie May. He also played for Sporting Lions for a short stint in 2003 before returning to the Bulawayo giants the following season.
Chilufya died on Sunday morning, the same day former Dynamos, Arcadia and Black Rhinos midfielder Hamid “Muzukuru” Dhana succumbed to cancer.
Dhana was diagnosed with colon cancer three years ago. He was 61 at the time of his death.
The former midfielder won back-to-back league championships with Dembare in the early 80s and was regarded as one of the best players of his generation.
