<blockquote.”We would like to say to the family, friends and relatives of the Molala family that our thoughts are with you during this difficult time. We hope you will find solace in prayer as it answers all questions,” said SAFA President Dr Danny Jordaan.

“LTD is one of the players who put laid the foundation for current players with his dribbling wizardry and football skills. May his soul rest in peace.”

Popularly know as “Let Them Dance” or “LTD” because of his dribbling skills, Molala made his name in the 70s when he played for Pax College Team in Polokwane.

He was spotted by Bantu Callies, which was later known as Pretoria Callies, where he played alongside football greats like Lucas Masterpieces Moripe from 1972 to 1976 when he was arrested for his political activities and spent six years in prison.

Upon his release he became more active in politics. He was elected deputy president of Azapo in 1985, and went on to serve as president from 1986 – 1990.
