Sunday was diagnosed with colon cancer in 2013 and has been fighting the ailment since.  On Wednesday the veteran footballer succumbed to the illness at Bokamoso Private Hospital.  The 42-year-old Mahalapye born player was a passionate footballer and he passes on still active in football.  He started playing at St Joseph’s Primary School in Mahalapye as a youngster back in the late 1980s.

He continued with his football at Mahalapye Junior Secondary School and Madiba Senior School.  While in Form Four at Madiba, he joined Mahalapye Hotspurs and helped his homeside to Premier League promotion in 1994 with his lethal prowess in front of goal.  He left the next season for Tirelo Sechaba in Masunga. In 1998, his football led him to the barracks and he joined the Botswana Defence Force where he served as a soldier and consequently played for BDF XI.

He later joined Mogoditshane Fighters where he teamed up

with Masego Ntshingane.  Between 1998 and 2002 Black Sunday played for the national team under David Bright.

Ntshingane described Sunday as a humble and passionate individual. He said as neighbours in Mahalapye and age mates they walked their football path together from their humble beginnings.

“We played together from primary and joined Hotspurs at the same time. We parted when I joined Notwane, but later met again at Fighters.  He was a footballer by heart and a true friend. He was great character on and off the field,” Ntshingane said.

When age was catching up, Sunday joined Flamingo Santos then Gabane Santos, where he later hung up his boots. After his stint, he continued playing social football, turning up for teams such as Siwelele, Magents and Nesta vs Lupia. He is survived by his wife, Kefilwe and their two sons. Sunday will be buried at Thomadithotse ward in Mahalapye on Saturday.
