Madisha to be laid to rest in Limpopo

Premiership

Motjeka Madisha will be laid to rest next week after the family confirmed his passing, according to Mamelodi Sundowns.

The family had requested privacy in December last year as they awaited confirmation of the DNA from the accident.

Statement:

Mamelodi Sundowns is saddened to confirm that the person who passed away in a car crash, on 12 December 2020, is indeed Motjeka “Ace” Madisha. The confirmation comes nearly fifty days after the passing of the player and due to the nature of the death as a result of the horrifying car crash, all processes had to be followed to confirm the identity of the dearly departed.

The unfortunate accident that took place on the Zuurfontein Road near Chloorkop, also claimed the life of Madisha’schildhood friend, Thabang Martin Kakase.

The distraught family of the late defender met with the pathologists a few days after the accident to confirm the identity of the driver through DNA tests and after the anticipated delay which requires due diligence it was regrettably confirmed on Thursday that the deceased is a member of the Madisha Family.

Sundowns also confirmed Madisha's funeral will take place on the 6th of February 2021 in Zebediela, Limpopo.
