A former PSL coach has passed away after succumbing to COVID-19 related complications.

"Yes, it's true that he has passed on late last night, due to COVID-19 related complications," Ntshingane told the Siya crew. 

"We will release a statement today, but obviously we lost a great man. He is a man who changed Botswana football. He helped a lot of people. He is the only coach who managed to go coach outside in South Africa. So we are sad, but what can we say? Now we just need to prepare for his honourable burial."
