Dr. Khoza Pays Tribute To ‘Sgora’
Posted: 19 May 2020

ABSA Premiership Chairman Dr. Irvin Khoza has sent his heartfelt condolences to Golden Arrows Football Club after they lost their skipper Nkanyiso Mngwengwe yesterday (18th of May 2020). The official statement is below;
“Today we pause to note with respect the untimely and sad passing of the captain of Golden Arrows Football Club, Nkanyiso Mngwengwe.

“We remember Nkanyiso most for his dependability. When Golden Arrows was relegated from the PSL to play in the National First Division (NFD) in 2014, Nkanyiso stayed put. He was part of the core that returned Arrows back to the PSL after only one season in the NFD.

“In keeping with the African naming culture where people earn nicknames through their deeds, Nkanyiso earned himself a deserved nickname as the dependable tower of strength in the Golden Arrows defence and a leader, on and off the field of play – “Sgora”.

Lala kahle Sgora saBafana Bes’thende Golden Arrows, Sgora saMngwengwe, Sgaqagaqa se PSL.

Kunina mndeni wakwa Mngwengwe and Golden Arrows, take solace in your knowledge that your loss is our loss and a loss to the nation,” concluded the statement.

ENDS
