Sadz! John Mametsa's mom has passed away
IEx Blue Bulls rugby player and current Strictly Come Dancing contestant, John Mametsa's mom has passed away.
Although it's unclear when mama Mametsa passed, news of her passing started to trickle in on Tuesday morning with fans and friends sending their condolences to the strong man.
One of the first to do so was fellow Strictly contestant Khanyi Mbau. She sent a simple but moving message to John on Instagram this morning offering her condolences and prayers to John and his family.
" To @johnmametsa condolences on the loss of your mother... Praying for you and the family, a time like this cannot be easy," she wrote, before adding "We will miss your strong presence and warm heart my buddy. R.I.P mama John".
John will not be participating in this week's round of Strictly Come Dancing to allow him time with his family.
