What a terrible story. Premier Soccer League referee, Akho Ndzingo, has been gunned down in Khayelitsha, Cape Town.


Ndzingo, who worked as a policeman by day, was fatally shot on Wednesday, 12 June in Khayelitsha, Cape Town.

“Violent Crime has robbed the sporting fraternity when football referee Akhona Ndzingo was gunned down in Khayelitsha last night,” Capeat6sport reported via Facebook.

“Akho, as he was affectionately known, was a member of Lingelethu LFA and officiated matches up to the profession level. MHSRIP.”

According to iDiski Times’ Sinethemba Makonco, Ndzingo was killed while on police duty in Site B but sadly did not make it in time at the Khayelitsha Hospital.

“Ndzingo, who also worked as a police officer, is reported to have been shot dead last night in Khayelitsha, Site B. The PSL referee was on duty as a police officer when a suspect shot him.

“A close person to the incident mentioned that he was rushed to Khayelitsha hospital where he was declared dead on arrival.

“Akhona was one of the youngest PSL referees, making his debut aged 26. In 2016 he was named SAFA Cape Town Referee of the Year at the age of just 22,” the report concluded.


Pitso Mosimane was linked with fallen DStv Premiership giants Kaizer Chiefs. Did his salary level prove too much for Amakhosi?

It’s been a long winter for Kaizer Chiefs supporters. Amakhosi are yet to confirm the new coach for next season. Additonally, Pitso Mosimane, a dream for many, has removed himself from the race.

According to Times LIVE’s seasoned reporter Mahlatse Mphahlele, Kaizer Chiefs would need R2 million per month to bring Mosimane to Naturena.

“Kaizer Chiefs may have to be prepared to pay a monthly salary of about R2m to secure the services of in-demand coach Pitso Mosimane,” the report said.

“It is in the Gulf region where it is believed his valuation must have increased significantly, meaning Amakhosi would have to fork out in the region of R2m or more if they want to lure Mosimane to Naturena.

“That is unless the coach was willing to take a pay cut because he viewed working at Chiefs as an exciting project.

“The club has not made any official announcement on its plans for a new coach but has indicated it is in the search for one. Reports have speculated Chiefs might make an announcement in the next two weeks,” the reported added.

Meanwhile, Nasreddine Nabi is said to be announced as the next Kaizer Chiefs coach.
