AmaZulu have confirmed that striker Bonginkosi Ntuli has sadly passed away after being admitted to hospital last week.
The 32-year-old only recently got married to AmaZulu FC CEO Sinenjabulo Zungu, but the couples’ happiness was short-lived.
Ntuli is understood to have been admitted to hospital last week, and Usuthu have now confirmed his sad passing on Sunday.
“It is with a very heavy heart that we inform you of the untimely passing of our beloved centre-forward and loyal servant, Bonginkosi Ntuli,” the club stated.
“Ntuli was (very recently) diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer, which metastasized and ultimately led to his death at the Midlands Medical Centre Private Hospital, in Pietermaritzburg this afternoon.
“May his beautiful soul rest in eternal peace. The club requests privacy and patience be granted his family and friends at this difficult time.”
Ntuli made 142 appearances for AmaZulu, including six this season. He also featured for Mamelodi Sundowns, Cape Umoya and Golden Arrows.
We, at iDiski Times, would like to express our condolences to Ntuli’s family and friends and everyone in the Usuthu football fraternity.
RIP Bongi Ntuli.
