Harare:The Zimbabwe Cricket Union's provincial development manager for Mashonaland, Dawson Mutsekwa, passed away in Cape Town, South Africa, where he had gone for specialist attention after slipping into a coma at the Avenues Clinic in Harare following an operation. He was 62 and is survived by his wife.

An efficient cricket administrator, Mutsekwa joined the Zimbabwe Cricket Union (ZCU) as facilities coordinator in June 2000, after a prolonged career with the Ministry of Education, Sports and Culture, which culminated in his appointment as headmaster of Churchill High School in Harare.

He promoted cricket hugely at the Churchill High School, and soon Churchill became one of the happening cricketing schools in the country. The likes of current Zimbabwe skipper Tatenda Taibu, seamer Douglas Hondo, Alester Maregwede, Hamilton Masakadza, Stuart Matsikenyeri, Vusumuzi Sibanda and Elton Chigumbura are proud pass-outs of this school.
