Caps United have moved closer to the Castle Lager Premier Soccer League title after a 1-0 win over Harare City saw them open a two-point lead over FC Platinum with two matches of the season's program remaining.
After 28 games, the Green Machine have accumulated 57 points while FC Platinum have 55 points and Highlanders, who lost 2-1 to Tsholotsho Pirates, way behind on 53 points.
The sponsors of the Premier Soccer League competition had a hectic weekend as they staged a Castle Lager braai festival which attracted hundreds of people in aid of Harare Central Hospital and Bulawayo’s Mpilo Hospital.
Donations are to be made to the two hospitals from proceeds from each braai pack and beer sold and the Zimbabwean public responded in their hundreds partying throughout the night for such a worthy cause.
Although musicians headlined by man of the moment, Jah Prazah, and superstar Oliver Mtukudzi finished their business early, that was not to be for night-life lovers who continued with the business of the day and are understood to have consumed over 12 tons of meat on the night in question.
One of those who was at the Castle Lager festival, Ananias Mhombera, said he enjoyed his time, adding that it was good that Zimbabweans from all walks of life were there for such a cause.
“It was one of the most entertaining events I have ever attended. It was good to meet all those different people. It is also refreshing to hear that part of the money will be channeled towards Harare Hospital and Mpilo,” said Mhombera.
Harare Central and Mpilo hospitals are going through a difficult period as they are experiencing a serious shortage of drugs.
Delta Beverages marketing manager, Patricia Murambinda, could not be reached to shed light as to when they would be distributing the proceeds from the Castle Lager festival to Harare Central and Mpilo hospital as they are in a critical position.
Delta Beverages are the sponsors of the Castle Lager Premier Soccer League.
