It was reported recently that the 69-year-old had suffered a stroke earlier this year, but that he was back home and thought to be on the mend after spending time in hospital.
However, it has now been confirmed that Nzimande, a goalscorer in the first ever Soweto Derby in 1970, was unable to make a full recovery, and unfortunately passed away.
Speaking of his loss, Kaizer Motaung Senior told Chiefs’ official website, “Words cannot express how distraught I felt upon hearing this news. I have known Ten-Ten since he joined Kaizer’s XI in late 1969. He was not only a great teammate during the time that he played for Chiefs, we were good friends as well.
“He was not a big talker, but on the field he led with his actions. He was very strong and a player everybody looked up to.
“On behalf of the club and my family I wish the Nzimande family strength during these challenging times. My deepest heartfelt condolences go out to the family and friends.”
Soccer Laduma would like to send their condolences to Kaizer Chiefs, as well as the family and friends of ‘Ten-Ten’ Nzimande. May his soul rest in peace.
