The details of Lolo's passing are still sketchy, but his club is expected to release an official statement later today

Ajax Cape Town defender Cecil Lolo has sadly lost his life in a tragic car accident in the early hours of Sunday morning.

According to the Eyewitness News, Lolo was driving a VW GTI at the time of the accident.   

“The driver of the VW Golf is rumoured to be sports star of some form, soccer player, but I can’t give identification as such,” Cape Town emergency services Robert Daniels told the EWN.

Lolo, 27, was an integral member of the Urban Warriors side that beat Kaizer Chiefs 1-0 in the MTN8 Cup final earlier this season.

Goal would like to send its condolences to the Lolo family, friends and the entire Ajax Cape Town team.
