THE Ruyamuro Service Stations Northern Region Division One League was plunged into mourning following the death of Chinhoyi Stars’ striker Craig “Thaza” Nyasoro.
He was one of the five people who died after an explosion at the Lions Den GMB depot on Tuesday.
Nyasoro (26), was an employee at GMB, and turned out for the Mashonaland West Province side as their chief striker.
Chinhoyi Stars official, Emmanuel Zembe, said they were struggling to deal with losing such a young talent.
“We are very saddened by the passing on of our player Nyasoro and, as a club, we are at a loss of words.
“He joined the club since its formation back in January 2016 and became part of the family.
“He was one of our key players and he has left a big void which the whole community and his family will not be able to fill.
“He helped the team gain promotion from Mashonaland West Division Two into the Ruyamuro Service Stations Northern Region Division One League where he played a big role.
“It’s a great loss to us as a team,’’ said Zembe. The Ruyamuro Service Stations Northern Region Division One League executive also sent their condolence messages with league chairman Willard Manyengavana saying it was a huge loss to the region.
“As Ruyamuro Service Stations Northern Region Division One League we are still in a state of shock as we have lost one of ours unexpectedly.
“As a family, any loss is very disturbing, to say the least.
“He was part of the family and we are with his family during these hard times. Chinhoyi Stars joined the League this season but we have managed to work together within a short space of time which shows they are professionals,” said Manyengavana.
Nyasoro was still single at the time of his death.
