SOUTH AFRICA, JOHANNESBURG – Police on Monday confirmed the death of a 33-year-old man, believed to be AmaZulu defender Anele Ngcongca, following a car accident in the early hours of the morning.
Ngcongca was in Durban ahead of his unveiling as an Usuthu player after striking a deal to join the club on loan from Mamelodi Sundowns.
South African Police Service’s Brigadier Jay Naicker said:
“It’s alleged that this morning, at 5am, a vehicle with two occupants lost control and overturned on the N2 freeway near Mtunzini. A 33-year-old man was declared dead at the scene.
