Nkosingiphile Ngcobo of Kaizer Chiefs had to hold back tears as he spoke about his friend and homeboy Wiseman Meyiwa.

Meyiwa’s promising football career was cut short at the age of 19 when he was involved in a car accident on his way to Pietermaritzburg on November 3, 2018. He had only begun to make a name for himself at Chiefs, where he made his debut against Cape Town City on September 13, 2017.

Meyiwa scored on the day after being given a chance to play for the Chiefs first team by then-coach Steve Komphela.

Meyiwa has tried to avoid the media since his official retirement on January 31, 2019, and no one knows how his recovery is going except those close to him.

At the time of his retirement, Chiefs doctor Hashendra Ramjee stated that Meyiwa had suffered a number of injuries, including a “thoracic vertebral fracture with spinal cord injury.”

However, whenever he is in Pietermaritzburg, he makes every effort to see him, sit with him, and talk with him. He is unaware of the former midfielder’s mental state, but he is friendly to everyone around him.

“Sometimes it is hard to get hold of him, but whenever I go home, I make time to go and speak to him,” Ngcobo told reporters.

“I try to find him so I can just sit with him and just have a talk. I don’t really know his mental state to be honest, but when he is around people he talks freely,” added Ngcobo.
