Keshi’s Johannesburg memorial takes place July 23


A memorial service for ex- Super Eagles coach, Stephen Keshi, has been fixed for July 23 in Kempton Park, Johannesburg, South Africa.

Keshi died on June 7 in Benin City, Nigeria, after a brief illness.

The event which will be organised by the “Friends of Keshi” precedes the official state funeral in Nigeria on July 29.

Former Super Eagles Goalkeeper, Idah Peterside, told that the group is determined to honour Keshi by bringing his friends together.

“Nigerians and other legends who cannot make the trip to the funeral ceremony taking place in Nigeria will have an opportunity to honour the ‘Big Boss.’

 “Keshi won the AFCON 2013 here in South Africa and has a lot of friends and fans here,” he told

Peterside also confirmed that some leading football figures will attend the event.

“We are in touch with Neil Tovey, Kalusha Bwalya, and a host of other legends who will grace and speak at the service,” he added.
