Tributes have been pouring in from South Africans for football player, Motjeka Madisha, following his death in a reported car accident this past Saturday.
South African soccer fanatics are mourning the death of the 25-year-old soccer player. Tributes and condolences have been pouring in on social media following the tragic death of the Mamelodi Sundowns defender in a car crash. Madisha was reportedly involved in a car crash with one other unnamed person on Saturday night. The South African football national team defender was reportedly coming from Mamelodi Sundowns’ 50th anninversary celebration.
It is alleged that the first responders state that the driver might have lost control of the car and hit a stationary object causing the car to burst into flames. Details of the crash emerged on Sunday afternoon and it is believed that Madisha succumbed to burn wounds on site of the crash. Both occupants were reportedly burnt beyond recognition. Madisha’s death has devastated South Africans who flocked to social media to pass on their condolences.
The accident occurred not far from Madisha’s Kempton Park home. Bafana Bafana soccer player, Anele Ngcongca, also unfortunately died in a tragic car accident a few weeks ago and was buried on the 10th of this month.
Madisha’s football career took off in 2014. He then went on to join Mamelodi Sundowns in 2016 and soon after, made it into South Africa’s national football team, Bafana Bafana. He reportedly had eighty match appearances for Mamelodi Sundowns and had scored once for Bafana Bafana in his brief career.
