Cape Town - Absa Premiership champions Mamelodi Sundowns on Wednesday confirmed that goalkeeper Denis Onyango has been granted compassionate leave after the death of his father.
"It is with great sadness that we learnt of the passing on of the father of Denis Onyango," the club said in a statement. "The Club has released Denis to mourn this great loss and he will immediately leave for Uganda with his family.
"He has the full support of all his team-mates, technical team, management, Board and the Club President. We all wish him and his family all the strength during these trying times."
Onyango will miss Masandawana's clash against Highlands Park on Wednesday and also seems to be a doubt for the highly-anticipated fixture against Kaizer Chiefs on Sunday.
Kick-off is at 19:30.
