“When I first saw and knew u I told the gents this man is crazy little did I know that u just a happy person. I’ve never seen u mad even when we lost a match you would cheer us up whatever illness took you must have been a monster cause u the strongest man I’ve ever came across.

Former Orlando Pirates striker Tendai Ndoro said: “With deepest sympathy for the loss of our Great Coach… May Your Soul Rest In Peace Coach (sic).”
“Descanse Em Paz 🙏🏽 The happiest soul I’ve ever come across, We will miss you Bheleza,” wrote Chiefs midfielder Keagan Buchanan on his Instagram account.
