SAFA president sends his condolences to Polokwane City FC's accident victims


THE South African Football Association (SAFA) President has sent his condolences to the families of four Polokwane City players that passed away in a horrific car accident just outside Polokwane late yesterday

In a message to the players’ families and friends, SAFA President Kirsten Nematandani said life was too precious to be lost ‘just like that’ and that coming soon after the passing away of Bafana Bafana

assistant coach, Thomas Madigage in another road accident, this incident was difficult to grasp.

“One life lost is devastating and to lose four young lives is sad, painful and difficult for relatives, friends and the South African football fraternity. “We just buried our assistant coach who died in similar

circumstances and for such a horrific accident to happen a few weeks later, brings to fore a lot of questions. We need to be careful on the roads because precious lives are being lost needlessly,” said SAFA

President, Nematandani.

Meanwhile, the SAFA President said he wished the injured speedy recovery.

“To those who are battling injuries in hospital, our prayers go to them to get well soon,” he said.
