Legendary Caps United coach Steve ‘The Dude’ Kwashi has died aged 67 due suspected Covid-19 complications.

According to media reports, close family members confirmed Kwashi died at his home in the early hours of this Monday due to suspected Covid-19 complications.

He was seriously affected by a car accident in 2001 that also affected his day-to-day living for the rest of his life.

Kwashi led the Green Machine to their first league title in the post-Independence era with his 1996 all-conquering squad.

The star-studded side also bagged a number of silverware including the Charity Shield, BP Cup and the Independence Trophy.

The former football mentor is father to Fungai “Tostao” Kwashi, another Caps United football legend who would later become the premiership side’s assistant coach.

Fungai said funeral arrangements were still being arranged.

But few of the late Kwashi’s fans would be able to pay their last respects on the history making football coach after government has limited funerals to just 30 mourners due to the Covid-19 menace.

Kwashi’s death comes hard on the heels of the deaths of fellow former coaches in ex-Dynamos mentors David Mandigora and Misheck Chidzambwa who both died recently.
