Sports enthusiasts in Africa have paid tribute to late Super Eagles Coach, Stephen Keshi.
The sports fanatics gathered in Johannesburg at an event convened by former Nigerian goalkeeper, Idah Peterside, to honour the Nigerian football legend.
In their remarks, Bafana Bafana Head Coach, Ephraim ‘Shakes’ Mashaba, and a former Nigerian Goalkeeper, Willie Opara, decried the interference with the efforts of coaches put in charge of teams.
The duo called on the official football administration to ensure less inference as much as possible, saying it is detrimental to the development of African football.
Also present at the memorial ceremony were other sports legends and fans from Nigeria, Zambia, DR Congo and South Africa.
Stephen Keshi passed on at the age of 54 in the early hours of Wednesday, June 8 in Benin City, the Edo State capital in south-south Nigeria.
In 2013, he became the second person to win the Africa Cup of Nations both as a player and a coach after Mahmoud El-Gohary of Egypt.
