The wife of Premier Soccer League and Orlando Pirates Chairman, Irvin Khoza, has passed away.  Orlando Pirates Football Club confirmed the passing of Matina Elsie Khoza on social media.

Matina, who was 69-years-old, died this morning after being in and out of hospital in the last couple of years, battling ill health.

Affectionately referred to as Mme Matina, she was mother to Sonono, the late Zodwa, Nkosana, and Mpumi Khoza.

“The Khoza family has asked the public to observe restrictions imposed on the nation by the COVID-19 pandemic.  There will, as a result, be no visitations and prayer services held at home,” says the club in a statement.

She is the second of Khoza’s two wives to pass away this year, following Yvonne Mantwa Kgotleng-Khoza’s death in January.
