Sandile Zungu’s Son-in-law Bongi Ntuli Recovers After Hospitalization And Urgent Surgery
AmaZulu Football Club striker Bongi Ntuli, who is the son-in-law of Sandile Zungu, was urgently hospitalized earlier this week due to a sudden illness. Fortunately, he underwent successful surgery and is now in recovery.
Ntuli is married to Sinenhlanhla “Sne” Zungu, the CEO of AmaZulu Football Club.
Sandile Zungu’s Son-in-law Bongi Ntuli Undergoes Surgery
Sources revealed that Ntuli fell ill on September 25 in Polokwane during AmaZulu’s match against Polokwane City. His health deteriorated after complaining of chest pains following his brother-in-law’s traditional wedding. He was immediately taken to a Netcare facility in Durban when he started vomiting blood.
“When the team lost 2-1 to Moroka Swallows on Friday, September 29, in a DStv Premiership match, Bongi was still not okay. The source adds that he tried to be strong, but he looked weak. Bongi went to Cape Town with his wife and other family members to support his brother-in-law, son of Sandile Zungu, for his traditional wedding but when they got back from Cape Town, he got worse. That’s when he was rushed to the hospital as he was vomiting blood,” the source disclosed.
However, his condition did not improve at Netcare, prompting his immediate transfer to Inkosi Albert Luthuli Hospital, another medical facility in Durban, where he underwent surgery.
“To be honest, we became worried because Netcare is a private hospital, but we became even more concerned when he was transferred to a government hospital. We are actually grateful and thank the hospital staff for saving Bongi’s life. His wife was worried sick because he wasn’t getting better,” said the source.
Gratitude and Privacy Surrounding Ntuli’s Recovery
A source expressed gratitude to the hospital staff for saving Ntuli’s life, acknowledging the worry and concern felt by his wife and both families.
“There is a huge sigh of relief from his family and his wife’s family. His teammates were also worried about his health; hence they were visiting him in hospital,” said the source.
The club requested its staff and players to keep Ntuli’s health situation private. When called for comment, AmaZulu spokesperson, Philani Ndlela, refused to comment.
“Why would you want to do a story about someone who is in hospital, unfortunately, we won’t comment,’ he said before dropping the phone.
