Mufulira Wanderers legend Fredrick Kashimoto has paid tribute to ex-Mighty defender Justin Kunda who was put to rest on Wednesday at Chingola Central Cemetery.

Kunda died on Sunday aged 42 at the University Teaching Hospital in Lusaka after an illness.

He died as Nchanga Rangers youth team coach.

“I am very saddened by the death of the young man Justin Kunda. He was a talented left back,” Kashimoto said.

Kunda was part of the famous Wanderers squad that won the Super Division title back to back in 1995 and 1995 under coach Ashious Melu.

“This is sad for the football fraternity in Zambia and Nchanga Rangers. Few months ago we lost Fighton Simukonda and Paul Chela,” Kashimoto mourned.

Kunda once served as Nchanga assistant coach under Simukonda.

He joined Nchanga as a player from Wanderers before he was made assistant coach after hanging his boots.
