Death strikes a blow to soccer

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.
