“It is very sad that we learnt the death of Manase Orao at around 5:00am. He fell sick while at home in early January and it is unfortunate that he has passed on.”

Manase joined the Kawangware-based outfit in June 2016 and has been listed as one of Sofapaka's acquisitions in the 2017 January transfer list; a thing Jabuya says he has no idea about. He previously played for Muhoroni Youth.
