Sanlam Hall Of Fame

Henyekane, Lekgetho, or Raselemane?

We must never forget our legends for it is they who built the foundations upon which our proud footballing house stands today. 
 
The Sanlam My Choice Hall of Fame does just that by allowing you to vote for a different late legend every week to be inducted into the hall of fame. Read up about the nominees this week and cast your vote in the poll below.
 
Jacob Lekgetho
Jacob was one of those tough-as-nails defenders who ensure an unpleasant experience for any striker who had to come across him. He served Moroka Swallows loyally for 155 games and scored 10 goals. He also featured for Russian Outfit Lokomotiv Moscow for 76 games. His prowess at club level earned him 25 national call-up’s. He was part of the squad that travelled to the 2002 FIFA World Cup and came on as a substitute in the thrilling 3-2 loss to Spain. “Bobo” was decidedly the most Russian South African you could come across, and he once told the Russian media that he would have loved to have played for them if Vladimir Putin gave him a citizenship. Bobo unfortunately lost his life after a lengthly battle with an undisclosed illness, widely believed to have been AIDS. 
 
Richard Henyakane 
 
Henyakane was one of the most prolific strikers to have ever passed through the halls of Mzansi. He made his debut for Hellenic before playing over 100 games for Golden Arrows, after which he had a spell at Mamelodi Sundowns and then his life was robbed from the beautiful game due to a car accident, whilst playing for Free State Stars. Richard made nine appearences for Bafana Bafana and scored his last goal against Orlando Pirates on 6 May 2014, before moving into heaven's starting XI.
 
Abram Raselemane 
An unbelievably talented and naturally gifted footballer. Abram was initially rejected by Ajax Cape Town and from then on went to prove that to be a mistake. He featured most prominently for Bloemfontein Young Tigers, Santos FC, SuperSport United and Wits University. He was best remembered for his flair and the ease at which he could move the ball past defenders. He also packed a powerful shot, and attacking prowess that earned him 15 caps for Bafana Bafana before his unfortunate death by suicide in 2008.
