A car accident has once again robbed football-loving South Africans.
Gift Mpho Leremi, known to us football fanatics as "The Continental" or "Vava Voom", was a shinning star of the nation.
He had talent. He would spend many months without being in action, but it would only take him one training session to be in form and start mesmerising opponents.
I am not praising him because he is no more, I am praising him because he was a star.
I say to the whole nation, let us cherish what he has done in his life of 22 years, instead of crying.
Gift did more good things on the field of play than the bad things he did off the field.
It is, therefore, good to remember him for the many things he did in the field of play.
Rest in peace Gift Mpho Leremi, you will be missed.
