Maritzburg United chairman Farook Kadioda has urged South Africans to look after one another during the trying times.
Just like most countries across the world, South Africa has been heavily affected by the Coronavirus.
The pandemic has resulted in 16,319 deaths across the world.
With all football matches suspended until April 16 and an assessment to be done afterwards, Kadioda has advised people to keep practising the spirit of Ubuntu and remain calm.
“Let’s look after one another and be especially kind and considerate towards the elderly and the sick,” he said on a message posted on the club’s official social media platforms.
“Let us all practice the spirit of Ubuntu and remain calm and supportive of one another. Together we have a better chance to pull through this crisis,” read the statement.
With the country about to go into lockdown for 21 days as of Thurday, March 26, football remains one of the most affected industries.
The Premier Soccer League is most likely to also give a way forward on their League programmes post the complexion of the lockdown.
