The soccer fraternity has suffered another major loss following the death of Mamelodi Sundowns player Motjeka Madisha. The 25-year-old died in a car crash in Kempton Park, just hours after his team hosted a gala dinner on Saturday night.

Details surrounding his passing are still sketchy but his passing was confirmed by the South Africa Football players union.

#RIP #MotjekaMadisha, we are heartbroken. The @Masandawana defender passed away in a car accident in Johannesburg, in the early hours of this morning. Our condolences to his family, friends, and football fraternity,” wrote the union on Twitter.

News of the rising stars’ passing has sent shockwaves across all social media platforms and messages of condolences are pouring in to his family and friends. His family has not released a statement as yet nor the football club however a screenshot of a WhatsApp conversation of apparently her sister confirming his death has gone viral on Twitter.
Madisha’s passing follows the tragic loss of former Bafana Bafana and Sundowns soccer star Anele Ngcongca, who was laid to rest on Friday in Gugulethu, Cape Town.
May their soul rest in peace.
