In a sad turn of events, the football community is grieving the loss of Simon Kasitu, the Northern Province Referees Coordinator. The Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) expresses its deepest sympathies to the family and football leadership in the province for their loss.
Kasitu was not just an ordinary referee coordinator, he was a respected match commissioner, a true testament to his passion and dedication to the game. His demise comes as a great loss to football, and his legacy will forever be cherished by those who knew and worked with him.
As the football fraternity mourns Kasitu’s passing, we hope to honor his life and contributions to the sport. Details for the funeral arrangements will be communicated in due course, but provisional indications suggest that the body will be laid to rest in Masaiti.
In these trying times, let us remember the positive impact that Kasitu had on football and strive to continue his legacy. Rest in peace, Simon Kasitu.
