Continuing with the notion of preserving the legacy of the larger-than-life Dr. Rantlai Petrus Molemela, Bloemfontein Celtic’s Chairman, Max Tshabalala, has urged all supporters on Sunday (20 August 2017) during Celtic ‘s game against Kaizer Chiefs to observe what he termed “special moment”.

Tshabalala said “Since acquiring the team, Ntate Molemela has been an advisor, father and mentor to the entire management and the rest of the Celtic family. Realising that it will be for the first time that Siwelele kick-starts the league fixture without Ntate Molemele, it is unbearable. We have taken an oath that the mark that he made will remain indelible in our hearts and minds. It will not only be prudent to show our appreciation for his massive contribution by asking everyone who will be at the stadium to clap hands in his honour from the 83rd till the 84th minute of the game. He passed on at the age of 83, hence we opted for those minutes as a team.

“We have engaged with the Molemela family in this regard and we are grateful that they have allowed us to honour Ntate. The atmosphere during the game of such magnitude will be made spectacular by the celebration of good memories we have enjoyed while Molemela was still alive. Our opponents on that day (Chiefs) will be duly consulted to also notify their supporters about this gracious initiative. Dr. Molemela’s legacy lives on” concluded Tshabalala.
