Sunday Marimo Chidzambwa is a Zimbabwean former association football coach and player. He is nicknamed "Mhofu" in Zimbabwe.[1]


Marimo played as a defender for Dynamos, with whom he won five league championships.[citation needed]

He also played at international level for Zimbabwe, appearing in a FIFA World Cup qualifying match in 1980.[2]

After retiring as a player, he went on to manage Dynamos, the Zimbabwe national team (in 2004 at the 2004 African Cup of Nations[3] and 2007[4]), and South African team Umtata Bush Bucks, where he was unable to take up the position because he lost his passport; he was replaced by Clemens Westerhof.[5] He was re-appointed manager of Zimbabwe in November 2008,[6] leaving in May 2010 to manage South Africa's Free State Stars.[7] Marimo quit Free State Stars in August 2010,[8] later becoming manager of Black Leopards.[9] On 20 October 2012 was banned by the FIFA and ZIFA for match fixing the next 10 years.[10]
