Residents of Bloemfontein gathered at St John’s Methodist Church, in Batho Location in Bloemfontein for the Memorial service of former Bloemfontein Celtic owner, Dr Rantlai Molemela.

The service was attended by Celtic supporters donned in their green and white club colours.

Other guests included Mangaung mayor Olly Mlamleli, FS MEC for sports Mathabo Leeto, Legislature Speaker Mamiki Qabathe and FS government director general Kopung Ralikontsane.

The football fraternity also came in large numbers to remember the man fondly known as “Whitehead”. Molemela’s funeral will be held on Tuesday at the stadium named in his honour.
