The president of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) Isaa Hayatou has expressed sorrow at the death of veteran Zambian football commentator Dennis Liwewe.

Hayatou said he heard the news of the passing on of Liwewe with great shock.

He said the deceased had a highly respected voice of the Zambian and African football.

He also said Liwewe was a towering figure of African radio live commentaries whose contribution has served as a reference point and inspiration for many modern day radio broadcasters of Zambian football.

ZANIS sports reports that Hayatou said this in a letter of condolences addressed to the Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) president Kalusha Bwalya.

Liwewe 78, who died in Lusaka on Tuesday at the Levy Mwanawasa general hospital after an illness, will be buried on Saturday.

Yesterday, President Michael Sata declared three days national mourning for the late veteran soccer commentator.
