Former Mighty Warriors and Harare City Queens star Aldiglade Bhamu has died.

She was 34.

Bhamu was admitted at a local hospital in Harare a few days ago after collapsing at home.

The midfielder succumbed to the complications on Thursday.

Bhamu was part of the Mighty Warriors squad that featured at the 2016 Women Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.

She also played for Mufokose Queens in the National Women’s League.

ZIFA has mourned the passing of the midfielder: “The Zimbabwe Football Association mourns the sad passing of former Mighty Warriors midfielder and budding coach, Aldiglade Bhamu…

“Her commitment, both as a player and budding coach, shall forever imortalise her as inspiration for women in football who are working towards the development of women’s football and Zimbabwean football in general.

“Zimbabwean football has lost a dedicated member who had a great work ethic and vision for local women’s football.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with the Bhamu family, her friends, and the women’s football community during this time of grief.”
