    RIP Asu, we shall live to remember you. Especially when you scored in style against Wizards then Surestreme Academy.

  13. Godfrey says:

    Never knew him personally….. neither was I lucky enough to watch him play as he was at nomads…. I missed all the games he played at kamuzu stadium. But to hear that he is dead is worse than missing his prowess on the field of play…. I think it’s too soon to hear of such about him, let alone hearing of his death AND never of his sickness…. allow me to call such news not only sad but also retrogressive… fare thee well Asu….

    A man from Cameroon seeking greener pastures in Malawi? This is wonderful indeed in the football fraternity, unheard of. Was his man really a star in his home county? I reserve my comment, may he rest in peace.

    That is it? Something was telling him ‘you have few days to live go back home’.Otherwise wanderers could have dug deep in their holed pockets to send his remains back to Cameron.Rest in Peace Asu.

    Isn’t the sister just trying to ‘cover’ up something. We all know Asu left Malawi after contractual disagreements, so isn’t she lying? You all know West African people and trickery.
    I am yet to believe the story. Can our reporters dig further to see the authenticity of the story? And I believe Asu deserved better than how Nomads treated him.
