Rest In Peace Lucky Maselesele

It is with great sadness that former Kaizer Chiefs star midfielder Lucky Maselesele has passed away.

Maselesele’s professional career started in 1998 at Kaizer Chiefs, where he had been promoted from the club’s development.

The Alexandra-born player quickly made himself a fan favourite at the Soweto giants in a short period of time with his unique style of play which was characterised by dribbling skills and high work-rate as a fast midfielder-cum-striker, although he was unlucky with lack of enough game time as he was competing with some of the top players of his time such as Jabu Pule (now Mahlangu), among others.  

Details of the 41-year-old’s passing are still sketchy at this point in time.

Manning Rangers, Thanda Royal Zulu and Black Leopards are some of the other clubs that Romza, as Maselesele was affectionately known, played for in a career he admitted to having made numerous mistakes in, including testing positive for cocaine in 2008, which led to him leaving Mzansi in 2011 to play in Namibia for Civics FC.

Maritzburg United and FC AK are some of the clubs that he played for, before hanging up his boots in 2011 on his return from Namibia.

Maselesele’s former teammate and close friend Isaac Mabotsa, who was visibly heartbroken, confirmed the sad news. 

“I can confirm the sad news, but at the moment I request that we be given time to come to terms with what has happened. I am at his home as I speak, but please understand, I won’t make any further comment on the matter,” said Mabotsa.  

Soccer Laduma sends heartfelt condolences to family and friends of the fallen star during this time of bereavement.
