Chiefs Mourn Death Of Club Legend
Kaizer Motaung says he is ‘reeling’ after being told of the death of former Kaizer Chiefs player and coach, Jack ‘Black Stone’ Chamangwana.
Chamangwana, who played for the Amakhosi between 1986 until 1988 before later taking over as the coach, was working in his homeland of Malawi as Technical Director of Be Forward Wanderers when he sadly passed away last week.
The 61-year-old ex-defender lost his battle at Malawi Queens Hospital in Blantyre according to reports, he leaves as Malawi’s second highest capped player of all time.
Motaung told the club’s official website, “I have received the devastating news of Jack Chamangwana’s passing. I’m still reeling from the shock of hearing this sad news.
“Black Stone made his mark in the Gold & Black colours of Amakhosi. We achieved many accolades during his stint with us. Who will forget Championship winning year 1989? Black Stone was there as our coach.
“In March last year, we invited him to the Soweto Derby. I relived the glory days with him while enjoyed lunch together. Little did I know his visit was his goodbye. So sad. During his visit, he shared his knowledge of football and told me he watched every Kaizer Chiefs match on DStv. I’m glad to have shared in his life and times. What a great gentleman!”
“On behalf of the Kaizer Chiefs family, I would like to send Love & Peace and heartfelt condolences to the bereaved family, friends, Wanderers FC and the Malawian football family.”
