Crash victim Vumile Dladla dies


Dladla, 25, died due to internal injuries while undergoing treatment at St Anne’s Hospital in Maritzburg on the same day.

Funeral arrangements for the former Amaglug-glug player have still to be announced.

Dladla, who was still club less at the time of his death, had hoped to join Supersport United next season after impressing coach Gavin Hunt while training with the team at the beginning of this year.

Former teammates Andile Cele and Siphesihle Ngobese expressed shock on hearing of the passing away of their friend.

“I was in Durban when I got the news. It was only when I got back to Maritzburg today that I was able to confirm that Vumile had died.

“I am still shocked and can’t believe it. I’m waiting to hear someone tell me that it is not true.”

Ngobese says the last time he spoke to Dladla was when they were at Supersport United and according to Matsantsantsa A Pitori defender, Siphiwe Mkhonza, Dladla had impressed coach Gavin Hunt.
