The Rufaro Macingura, a Mighty Warriors hotshot who scored in the 85th minute, was the one that made Banyana Banyana’s day.
Ranganai Tinashe Tzotizei, a journalist, shared his special moments with Mafidi. These will be etched in football folklore.
|This was the first thing that came to my mind when I heard about Rufaro “Mafidi”, a former Mighty Warriors striker. It took me five minutes to find this moment that she created, which will be etched in football legendary. 9 July 2011 is a day that marks Zimbabwe’s darkest hour. In 2001, Zimbabwe lost 13 fans to South Africa in a World Cup qualifier. As if by chance, the Mighty Warriors were playing Banyana Banyana, their arch-nemesis, in the final of Cosafa Women’s Championship. At that time, I was covering the tournament for the Standard and eventually got the main gig. 85 minutes remained with penalties looming. Rufaro rose highest to take the ball and looked it in. Rufaro had to have been subjected to maintenance work. I have never seen such wild celebrations of a goal. It was won by Zimbabwe and it made the back page on the following day. This was my first ever backpage story. This was the only time I had ever reached back to the page. The Mafidi tower. We send condolences to her family as well as the nation. It is so difficult to look back on this moment. Our golden heroine of the day. Today she will join other departed queens to have a great time in heaven. May her soul rest in peace.|
