Mngwengwe passed away suddenly in the early hours of May 18th, increasing the misery of an already difficult period for many.

Ncikazi says the players are ready to complete the season and have many reasons to make sure they finish it on a high.

"As a club we are ready to complete the season," Ncikazi tells

"Mentally the players have shown readiness even though we are not sure when are we starting as we are still waiting for the League.

"The lockdown has united us. As you know, we lost one of our own and that has made our unity stronger."

Ncikazi says the players want to make sure they make the late Mngwengwe proud in every game they play to ensure their former teammate's wishes are fulfilled.

"He was an extremely good leader and he wanted to see this club succeed," adds Ncikazi.

"I'm sure he would like to see that happening. We also have a duty to make sure we honour him with great success, as that was his wish."
