Ben Bamfuchile is dead. I can hardly believe that this great man is not with us anymore. Forever humble, he chose his own path through the pitfalls and tribulations of Namibian soccer, alienating a lot of people along the way.
Former Namibian soccer coach Ben Bamfuchile passed on in the northern Zambian town of Kitwe on Thursday evening, December 27.
47-year old Ben Bamfuchile had been admitted at Poly Clinic in Nkana West Township over two weeks ago, but finally passed away on Thursday evening. According to Lusakatimes.com, the highly respected coach died at exactly 22:15PM local time at the Clinic.
Ailing Brave Warriors coach Ben Bamfuchile passed away last night in his native Zambia, where he was recovering from a mysterious illness.
His wife broke the bad news to the Brave Warriors team manager Tim Isaacs on Wednesday, December 27 â?? the same day he was scheduled to report for duty in Namibia.
