Mayambela, Jali to attend funeral

Premiership

Meyiwa, who was shot dead in Vosloruus on Sunday, is set to be buried in Durban on Saturday.

Mayambela confirmed that his Swedish club Djurgardens IF have granted him permission to attend Meyiwa's funeral.

"Yes, I am coming to South Africa to pay my last respects to Senzo. He was a great person and a wonderful teammate at Pirates," Mayambela tells KickOff.com.

Bafana Bafana midfielder Andile Jali is also set to join thousands of South Africans to bid farewell to his former teammate after being granted leave by his Belgian club KV Oostende.

Minister of sport Fikile Mbalula said buses have been organised to ferry supporters to Meyiwa's funeral at Moses Mabhida Stadium. All PSL and NFD matches have been called off this weekend.
