The remains of former IBV Vestmannaeyjar goalkeeper Abel Dhaira, who succumbed to colon cancer last week in Iceland, are now in Busoga for the last respects and burial on Wednesday in Mayuge.

A funeral service was held for the former international star at All Saints Cathedral where family, friends and football fans gathered to pray for his soul.

There were scenes of heartache; it was painful, to say the least. Dhaira was a loved man both home and in Iceland where he plied his trade.
