After the match, Triangle FC gaffer Taurai Mangwiro said the team was dedicating the victory to their fallen supporter.
"I would like to dedicate this victory to our sister Chipo who was a well-known supporter of our team. We are saddened by that so with this victory, we say may her soul rest in peace," Mangwiro said.

"Chipo was a true Meke supporter. She would travel to as far as Kariba and last time, we were with her in Beitbridge for the match against Tsholotsho," said Zinyowera.
Triangle FC midfielder, Lameck Nhamo said his experience with the team will never be the same without Dekete cheering him up.
"Life will never be the same at Triangle FC without sister Chipo cheering me up. We both came from Save village," said Nhamo.
