Orlando Pirates have confirmed the passing away of Mme Matina Elsie Khoza.
Mme Khoza is the wife of club Chairman Dr. Irvin Khoza, mother of Sonono, the late Zodwa, Nkosana and Mpumi Khoza.
She passed away this morning at the age of 69.
“Mme Matina, who was affectionately referred to by everybody, including her ten grandchildren, as Mama, has been in and out of hospital in the last few years battling ill health,” the club said in a statement on Thursday.
“The Khoza Family pleads with the public to help us observe restrictions imposed on the nation by the Covid-19 pandemic. There will, as a result, be no visitations and prayer services held at home,” said the club.
This is the second death at the Khoza household this year, following the passing away of Dr. Khoza’s other wife, Ausi Mantwa Khoza in January.
May her Soul Rest in Peace!
