Cedric Sugar Ray Xulu, AmaZulu legend dies at age 81. Sugar Ray Xulu died today Monday 4th May 2020 at Marainhill Hospital where he was receiving treatment.
Cedric Sugar Ray Xulu for a long time has been suffering from cancer. Sugar Ray Xulu Stadium in Clermont was named after him.
Sugar Ray Xulu death was confirmed by General Manager at Usuthu, Lunga Sokhela.
Reacting to Xulu’s death Sokhela described the legend as something, stating that people like him are rare to find.
In his words he said..
“We are devastated by this sad news. The legendary Xulu was the soul of the club, if we refer back to history,”
“AmaZulu are well respected because of people like him. People like Mangosuthu Buthelezi and Jomo Sono respected Mr Xulu. For a legend like Jomo Sono to say he looked up to Sugar Ray Xulu is something else.
“You then realised that this man was something great. Unfortunately in our time we never got to see people like that and we don’t have archives. As you hear stories you realise that this was a great man. We are sad.
“Sadly this happened during this time of the lockdown. I’m hoping that we will be part of the 50 people category (who can attend the funeral). As a club, we will pay tribute to him. Let us celebrate his life and may his soul rest in eternal peace.”
Tributes are currently pouring in for the legendary soccer star..
