In Remembrance of Juma Ngqobongwana
18th May 2015
Everyone at MABL is saddened by the sudden passing of Juma Ngqobongwana of Moss Side Tropics.
Juma passed away the night before he was due to attend a basketball tournament in Bradford with his Moss Side Tropics team mates.
Those of us that knew him will remember Juma as a knowledgeable, friendly and popular individual who was a much loved member of the Manchester basketball community and he will be deeply missed by many.
Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this difficult time.
