It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing away of Mondli Cele the Maritzburg United attacker who was involved in the drawn game against Orlando Pirates at Harry Gwala Stadium last night. Cele passed away after being involved in a car accident when he lost control of his vehicle in the wet weather last night.

The news as reported by Kickoff come as an absolute shock as it was only just yesterday Grit Sports wrote about him in the game. It must be said that he had the good game yesterday scoring the first and opening goal of the game.


42′ Once again Pirates are caught on the break… once again Maritzburg player running with his head down can’t pick any of his open options, leaving his team mates furious…
