As of yesterday, football fans were still in the dark as to what caused Prince’s death and his brother Prosper, the eldest of the Kadewere brotherd has detailed what happened.
“He started complaining of chest and side pains at the weekend, so we took him to a medical facility for attention. COVID-19 (rapid) and malaria tests were done, but all came out negative. On Monday, he was diagnosed with pneumonia, but he continued complaining of chest pains,” he told NewsDay Sport.
“He was in pain, but it was nothing serious. It was not something that we were worried about. We went for his check-up today (yesterday) and was given an injection. All this time, he was looking jovial and everything looked well. But the situation deteriorated as we returned to the car and about to leave the medical facility. Unfortunately, we lost him,” he added
