Maritzburg United Star Luyanda Ntshangase Has Died! It’s a sad time for South African football as we have los another star barely a week after losing another one.
21-year-old Ntshangase had been fighting for his life after being struck by lightning playing in a friendly match for Maritzburg in early March.
Maritzburg United chairman Farook Kadodia confirmed the passing of Luyanda on Friday. I extend condolences on behalf of the whole Maritzburg United family. Mr and Mrs Ntshangase are still obviously in a condition of shock. We will attend the family tonight,” Kadodia said in a statement.
“I think the whole of Maritzburg as a family will be taken aback. Especially on the eve of the club’s first-ever cup final. Obviously that is a lot to manage.
“We will have to deal with the situation step by step. It’s not an easy situation to handle‚ especially with this kind of mourning.”
May his soul rest in peace.
