JOHANNESBURG, May 8 – Kaizer Chiefs chairman Kaizer Motaung has paid tribute to Jack ‘Black Stone’ Chamangwana who passed away last week in a Malawi hospital.
The Malawian-born Chamangwana played for Chiefs from 1986 to 1988 and later took over as coach.
“I have received the devastating news of Chamangwana’s passing,” said Motaung. “I’m still reeling from the shock of hearing this sad news.”
He was also known as Black Stone.
“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,” the chairman noted, adding: “In March last year we invited him to the Soweto Derby.
“I relived the glory days with him while we 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,” Motaung added.
