Sua Flamingoes’ Murirwa died when the car he was driving swerved off the road after a suspected tyre burst and hit a tree near Sowa Town last Friday.

Murirwa was with three of his teammates; two are recuperating in Nyangabgwe Referral Hospital while the third was treated for minor injuries and discharged. Satter will be laid to rest in Francistown’s Area-S tomorrow. Morupule Wanderers player, Matoteng will also be laid to rest on Saturday at Rasesa Ward in his home village of Tumasera/Seleka.

Matoteng was driving alone from Palapye towards south when the car he was driving overturned.

First Division North secretary general, Rapula Gaotlhobogwe said they found it appropriate to suspend the league.

“This is to allow their teammates and former mates to pay their last respects,” he said noting that the league will resume next weekend.

Meanwhile, the battle in the First Division South continues. Mochudi Rovers have set the pace and are yet to concede a goal after three outings.

They have bagged five in their two wins and a single draw. On Sunday, they welcome a Mogoditshane Fighters
