Molemela was one of the leaders in building South African football since 1969.
He built Celtic after purchasing the status of Mangaung United and changed the club’s name to Bloemfontein Celtic in 1975.
In 1991 he sold his shares to former Celtic player Jimmy Augousti when they were relegated to the First Division.
“We have lost a stalwart and a mentor‚” Celtic chief executive Khumbulani Konco stated.
“Since he was made life president‚ he frequented our offices a lot and remained very interested in our fortunes.
“The reason he would come in would be to talk to us and motivate us. He also spoke a lot to the players‚ which really helped them.
“He was fearless‚ the way he built Bloemfontein Celtic into what it is today. It all started with him. We have lost a great leader.”
Molemela was laid to rest on Friday, and here's the posts in his honour from Bloemfontein.
