It is hard to accept that the gifted Gift Mpho Leremi is no more. To rub salt into the gaping wounds of soccer fanatics and the country as a whole, Lesley Manyathela was killed in a similar accident a few years ago.
The 2010 World Cup has been dealt a severe blow by the death of Leremi. He was one of a few players who struck the ball effectively with both feet. Gracious me, the talented young man is no more.
Death has robbed us of another talent as a country. May his soul rest in peace. Muya wanu ulale nga mulalo, Gift.
