AmaZulu are in mourning following the news that Bongi Ntuli passed away on Sunday at the age of 32 after a short battle with cancer.

The striker had featured six times in the DStv Premiership this season, with his last appearance coming in the 3-2 win over Cape Town City on September 17.

However, Ntuli was only recently diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer and he succumbed to the disease after spending a week in hospital.

The Pietermaritzburg native began his professional career at Golden Arrows in 2012 and went on to play for Mamelodi Sundowns and Platinum Stars before joining Usuthu on a permanent transfer in January 2019.

He had only tied the knot the with AmaZulu CEO Sinenjabulo Zungu in September, but sadly their marriage has been short-lived.

“It is with a very heavy heart that we inform you of the untimely passing of our beloved centre forward and loyal servant Bonginkosi Ntuli,” the KZN club said in a statement on Sunday.

“Ntuli was very recently diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer, which had metastasised and ultimately led to his death at the Midlands Medical Centre Private Hospital in Pietermaritzburg this afternoon.

“May his beautiful soul rest in eternal peace. The club requests privacy and for patience to be granted his family and friends at this difficult time.”
