AmaZulu defender Anele Ngcongca’s funeral was postponed on Wednesday.

The funeral was initially announced to take place on 3 December.

The 33-year-old died in a car accident on the N2 freeway near Mtunzini on 23 November, while the driver of the vehicle sustained serious injuries and was taken to hospital for medical attention.

The family on Wednesday morning posted the date change on Twitter, explaining that his mother fell ill. The statement said she wanted the funeral to go ahead, but the family took a decision to postpone.

The funeral will now be on 10th December 2020.
