Chiefs Legend, “Rollaway”, Passes Away

Former Kaizer Chiefs defender Chris "Rollaway" Ndlovu has passed away, with his twin brother Isaac ‘Negro’ Ndlovu confirming the news with Soccer Laduma.

Isaac explained that his brother past away around 8pm on Saturday, April 11, as repercussions of a mild stroke that he had suffered recently. “Yes he (Chris) died on Saturday night. He was at his home in Sebokeng (Gauteng). It was after the mild stroke. The funeral will be held on Thursday,” a mournful Isaac Ndlovu explained.

Rollaway was born in Pimville, Soweto, on August 31- 1945. He was 74 years of age at the time of his death.

The Chiefs legend’s niece, Thandi Ndlovu, also confirmed the news, indicating that her uncle, Chris, had been suffering with heart conditions. “Yes, he was my uncle. He died at around 8pm,” she confirmed to the Siya crew.

Rollaway turned out for Pimville United Brothers during his playing days and was a legendary Chiefs defender during the 1970’s, having played alongside the likes of Teenage Dladla, Ace Ntsoelengoe and Banks Setlhodi.

Soccer Laduma send our heartfelt condolences to Ndlovu’s family and friends, and the entire football fraternity.
