The Greater Context

 

Mary Khoza, Mosimane’s mother, was the sister of former Orlando Pirates players Gabriel ‘Tikkie’ Khoza and Abram ‘Mainline’ Khoza.

 

Throughout his career, Mosimane played for Jomo Cosmos, Orlando Pirates, Mamelodi Sundowns, and other prominent teams.

 

This recent development deals a setback to both the club and the coach’s strategies as they strive to steer clear of relegation in the current season.

What’s On The Horizon?

 

Mosimane may receive a brief period of leave to lay his brother to rest before reuniting with the team for the final stretch of matches.

 

He was assured of a contract extension should he guide Abha to maintain their position in the Saudi top-flight league.

 

As of now, the team occupies the 15th position on the table with 25 points – one place and one point above the relegation zone. They are set to face Al Shabab on Thursday evening.
