By: Maano Nekhavhambe

Limpopo Province MEC for Sports, Arts and Culture Mme Onicca Moloi has expressed her sadness over the untimely passing of Polokwane City defender Mogau Tshehla at the weekend.

Tshehla’s death comes at a time when he was beginning to reinforce his position in the team starting line-up and when the Limpopo Province based team is battling their way out to escape the relegation zone as they are currently placed on the 13th, Absa Premiership, spot.

 

The 26-year-old man marker died in a car crash at Kwaggafontein in Mpumalanga on Sunday night, exactly four days after playing a full 90 minutes for Rise and Shine in the last 32 encounter of the Nedbank cup against Ubuntu Cape Town which they lost 3-2.

“As a football player who played for a Limpopo based professional team, he was an inspiration to the youngsters in our province and the rest of the country. Particularly those who aspire to be sports people.” Said MEC Moloi

“We as the Department of Sports, Arts and Culture have conveyed our sympathy to both Polokwane City and his family.” The MEC added

The Lydenburg born versatile defender joined Polokwane City from his hometown club Witbank Spurs in January 2017 after penning a three and a half year contract and made only seven appearances for the club in all competitions.

Tshehla’s family has indicated that details of the funeral will be communicated in due course.
