Hundreds of football lovers said their last goodbye to former national football team and Mighty Wanderers goalkeeping great, Kenneth Kandulu.

Mourners gathered at College of Medicine mortuary in Blantyre to pay their last respect to Kandulu, who died Sunday morning at his residence in Manase Township, Blantyre after succumbing to Kidney failure.

Some of the notable people, who gathered at the mortuary, were Mighty Wanderers officials that included George Chamangwana, David Kanyenda and coach Stewart Mbolembole.

Some of the veteran players present were Lawrence Mnenula, John Paipi, and Ojuku Malunga.

According to Malunga, a former Flames defender, burial is scheduled to take place at his home in Thiokol.

Born on July 2, 1971, late Kandulu popularly known amongst his friends as Mboba started playing for Wanderers in 1989 and was drafted into the national team in 1991 until he retired in 2000.

He was in the Flames squad in 1999 when Malawi beat Tanzania 3-2 during an Independence Day Celebrations match at Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre.

His death comes barely a year after the nation also lost another former Flames and Silver Strikers goalkeeper, Ganizani Masiye.
