Ndengeza players lucky to be alive


ABC Motsepe League side Ndengeza FC were involved in a terrible accident after their league game against Ditlou FC on Friday in Groblersdal, Limpopo.

‘Ka Tika’ – their nickname that means it’s difficult, were travelling back home on the R37 Mashishing road following their 2-1 defeat when their bus was involved in a head on collision with another vehicle leaving the driver of the other car deceased.

The bus that the Giyani-based side were travelling in caught fire on the scene, but all the players managed to be rescued and rushed to the Petersburg Hospital in Polokwane and are reportedly fine.
