Former Orlando Pirates defender Siyabonga Sangweni was appointed as a deacon of the church he attends.

Sangweni says he has dedicated his life to serving the church after retiring from football.

“I have just been appointed as a deacon at the Church of God and Saints of Christ. I have always been a member of the church, however, I couldn’t commit myself fully because football took up most of my time. Now that I am retired I have dedicated my life to church and speak to the youth and encourage them,” Sangweni told Isolezwe.
