The memorial service of soccer star Anele Ngcongca is currently underway in Gugulethu Cape Town.
Ngcongca died in a car accident last month in KwaZulu Natal.
Family and friends are gathered at JL Zwane in Gugulethu ahead of the memorial service.
Gugulethu residents told Daily Sun that they are digesting his death.
"I'm here for his memorial service but I will be satisfied that he is dead when we bury him. It still feels surreal," said Bantu Mayalo (29) who stays in the same area with Ngcongca.
