The Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP) was saddened to hear of the passing of AmaZulu FC player, Bonginkosi Ntuli, who succumbed to cancer yesterday. The IFP extends heartfelt condolences to the Ntuli and Zungu families, friends, teammates, and the entire football community. Ntuli was not only a talented athlete but also a symbol of resilience and determination in the face of adversity.
Throughout his career, Ntuli accumulated an impressive record of 142 appearances for AmaZulu, with six of them occurring during the current season. Beyond his time with AmaZulu, he showcased his talents in other prominent clubs, including Mamelodi Sundowns, Cape Umoya, and Golden Arrows.
Ntuli’s journey on the football field was an inspiration to many. His unwavering commitment to the sport demonstrated his remarkable strength and passion. We honour his memory as a true warrior, both on and off the field, and his legacy will continue to inspire generations of young athletes.
In these difficult times, we stand in solidarity with Ntuli’s loved ones, offering our support and comfort. The IFP recognises the profound impact he had on the football community, and we are grateful for his contributions to the game. We join the nation in mourning his loss and remembering the indomitable spirit of Ntuli.
As we bid farewell to a talented athlete and a courageous individual, let us remember Bonginkosi Ntuli – not only as a remarkable football player but also as a symbol of hope and determination in the face of adversity.
