Cape Town - Maritzburg United have been left devastated by the news that Mlondi Dlamini has lost his life following a car accident on Sunday.
The midfielder was reportedly travelling through Cato Ridge in KwaZulu-Natal when tragedy struck, with police informing the Premiership team of his passing.
The Team of Choice are set to release an official statement on Monday, according to club chairperson Farook Kadodia.
"It is very sad and devastating news. We received the call from the police at 07:30 today. We will release the statement with all the details tomorrow morning (Monday)," Kadodia told Independent Media.
Dlamini is the second Maritzburg player to pass away on South Africa's roads in recent times, after Mondli Cele died in January 2016.
