RIP Sinethemba Jantjie: Wits contract value, memorial service & funeral
The memorial service, funeral details and contract value of the late Sinethemba Jantjie's move to Bidvest Wits have been revealed.
As Futaa reported on Monday, the 30-year-old Free State Stars winger was tragically killed in a car crash.
The latest that has come out on Janjtie’s death is the due details for his burial and honour.
DATE: Thursday, 04 April 2019
VENUE: Bohlokong New Hall, Bethlehem
DATE: Saturday, 06 April 2019
VENUE: Whittlesea, Oxton Village near Khulasomele Primary School (Eastern Cape),” Jantjie's club posted on social media.
With the players having signed a pre-contract with big-money spenders Bidvest Wits, KickOff got hold of the player’s agent, Ratshibvumo Mulovhedzi, who revealed that the late winger had completed a deal with R4.5 m with the Gauteng club.
"What I can say is, this is sad news, it's sad the way this boy left us. Rantsi called me early in the morning at 6am to inform me," Mulovhedzi told KickOff.com.
"We had already found a house for him in Joburg, and another thing again we made an investment at Old Mutual. Another thing is I was his 'parent' because me and him we talked about everything. I scouted him in Cape Town, now I'm doing all the arrangements [for his funeral].
"The boy was going to get a lot of money now at Wits to secure his future. We didn't get any money as yet from Wits, they were supposed to give us money at the end of the season. He was going to start to get a salary from Wits in July.
"Now what is going to happen is I'm going to meet with Wits before I say anything about Wits to avoid what happened to the likes of [Emiliano] Sala [the Cardiff City player who recently died in an aeroplane crash], so I'm going to meet Wits to sort out that issue."
"He had signed a four-year deal with Wits, they are the ones who will tell us what is the way forward from now. I'm the one who is doing everything now because he had no parents, I was a parent to this boy, he had no parents. He's got two children. My worry now are those children, whatever he has left behind now is for his children,” Mulovhedzi concluded.
