PSL Confirm Moment Of Silence For All Games

The PSL Will Hold A Moment's Silence For Winnie Mandela

By Soccer Laduma - Apr 03, 2018 11:34 AM
The Premier Soccer League has confirmed that there will be a moment of silence for Winnie Madikizela-Mandela across all competitions this week.
 
 
Mandela sadly passed away at the age of 81 on Monday, with it being confirmed that she had lost her battle with illness after being 'in and out of hospital since the start of the year’.
 
The anti-apartheid activist and former wife of Nelson Mandela, was a struggle icon in South Africa and the country is currently mourning her loss. 
 
With games taking place in the Absa Premiership, National First Division and the new MultiChoice Diski Shield, the league has confirmed that all will be paying their respects. 
 
 
Their statement read:
 
As the world mourns the passing of one of the greatest revolutionaries of our time Mama Nomzamo Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, the football family will pay its respect to the ‘Mother of the Nation’ ahead of the domestic football fixtures. 
 
The Premier Soccer League will observe a moment of silence for Mama Nomzamo Winnie Madikizela-Mandela. 
 
This will apply to all Absa Premiership, National First Division and MultiChoice Diski Shield fixtures from today until she is laid to rest. 
 
The League is saddened by the passing of Mama Winnie – a true pillar of the struggle and a person who sacrificed so much in the fight against apartheid and in the emancipation of the mind.
