Veteran football commentator Dennis Liwewe has died.
Liwewe, 78 died this morning at Levy Mwanawasa General Hospital in Lusaka.
“He passed away this morning in hospital,” his son Ponga Liwewe confirmed en route to Lusaka from the Copperbelt.
“He has been in hospital with a Liver aliment.”
Ponga said a full statement will be released after a family meeting on Tuesday afternoon in Lusaka.
Liwewe was the voice of Zambian football for the last 45 years covering over 14 Africa Cup finals.
His most defining moment was in April, 1993 when he gave one of the most moving eulogies ever seen on Zambian television following the Gabon Air Crash.
