It was recently revealed by the Siya crew that Reneilwe Letsholonyane pulled out of Kaizer Chiefs’ camp ahead of the SuperSport United match following the death of his father.
Yeye, as he is affectionately known, has been given compassionate leave after finding out his father had passed away on Monday evening.
It is a lovely touch by Chiefs management to allow him time to mourn, and we can only hope that Yeye finds comfort and peace during this tough time.
Much has been made of Kingston Nkhatha making a return against the side he left in January, but it is Yeye who the fans and the team should be thinking about.
The midfielder has served us valiantly throughout the years, and has been near impeccable this season too - it is only right that the team honours his absence by winning this match and dedicating it to him.
This will be only the second league match Yeye will miss for the Amakhosi this season, and we can only hope that when he returns he will be filled with strength to carry on.
Khosi fans, death is never an easy thing… Do you think this match should be played and dedicated in honour of Mr Letsholonyane?
