Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns owner Patrice Motsepe has donated $1 million to the "Ebola Fund" of Guinea in an effort to assist in the fight against the epidemic.

The outbreak of the virus has affected communities in the West African region, which could result in the postponement of the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations after hosts Morocco pulled out due to fears it could spread.

A statement on Sundowns' official website confirmed Motsepe's commitment to aid Guinea through his Motsepe Foundation and combat the deadly virus.

"The donation will assist Guinea with clinical management, social mobilisation, medical coordination and other key mechanisms of controlling the disease," said the statement.

"The Motsepe Foundation will continue to contribute and assist in the fight against Ebola in West Africa and will work together with various stakeholders and other interested parties.

"Mr Motsepe called on the African and international business community and the medical fraternity to continue contributing and assisting to fight the disease which has claimed thousands of lives in the latest outbreak."
