ANC YOUTH LEAGUE (ANCYL) in the Northern Cape:

THE African National Congress Youth League (ANCYL) in the Northern Cape Province has learnt with shock and sadness of the passing on of Richard Henyekane.

The untimely death of this promising star, who hails from Galeshewe, is without doubt a loss to his family, as well as the soccer fraternity.

Henyekane, affectionately known as the “Kimberley Express”, played for Free State Stars, Mamelodi Sundowns and represented the country in an exemplary manner when he was chosen to play for Bafana Bafana.

He was a disciplined soccer player who never allowed fame to go to his head. Young people should emulate his disciplined outlook and posture, as he died a respected soccer star.

The ANCYL extends its sincere sympathies to the family, fans, teammates and the broader reach of South African Football.
