AmaZulu on Sunday confirmed the death of 32-year-old striker Bonginkosi Ntuli. 

"It is with a very heavy heart that we inform you of the untimely passing of our beloved centre-forward and loyal servant, Bonginkosi Ntuli," a statement from the Durban club read.

"Ntuli was (very recently) diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer, which metastasized and ultimately led to his death at the Midlands Medical Centre Private Hospital, in Pietermaritzburg this [Sunday] afternoon.

"May his beautiful soul rest in eternal peace.

"The club requests privacy and patience be granted his family and friends at this difficult time. Further announcements will be made in due course."

Born in Pietermaritzburg, Ntuli started his professional career with Golden Arrows back in 2012 and while he was on the books of Mamelodi Sundowns between 2014 and 2019, he spent much of that time on loan at other clubs. 

He has been playing for AmaZulu on a full-time basis since 2019.
