The Bloemfontein Celtic and Football fraternity is in mourning, following the death of the club’s former owner and current Life-Time President, Rantlai Petrus Molemela. Born on the 16th pf April 1933, Molemela passed this morning (Sunday, 26 March 2017) after a long illness that somehow affected his health badly.
Celtic chairman Max Tshabalala said… “We are saddened by the death of our mentor, leader and father-figure at the team. We are incredibly devastated and emotionally paralyzed by the loss of such a valuable and immensely experienced administrator who not only made a contribution at Celtic but for soccer, sport and the community at large.”
“It is painful losing Ntate at this time when we genuinely needed him for his motivation and guidance towards both the management and players. We will forever cherish his dedication and absolute love towards the team. He has built a legacy that we have to maintain as a brand. May his soul rest in peace.” concluded an obviously shattered Celtic chairman.
Details of the funeral and other logistics will follow soon.
