“I have received the devastating news of Jack Chamangwana’s passing,” laments Kaizer Chiefs’ supremo Kaizer Motaung. “I’m still reeling from the shock of hearing this sad news.”
Affectionately known Black Stone, Chamangwana played for Kaizer Chiefs from 1986 until 1988 and later took over as coach.
“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,” Chairman notes, adding, “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!”
Football was jack’s life and he served the game to his final day, most recently as the Technical Director for Malawian heavyweights Be Forward Wanderers.
“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,” Chairman concludes.
Jack Chamangwana may be gone but he will never be forgotten. His memory will linger on in the hearts and minds of the Kaizer Chiefs family.
May the soul of the Black Stone rest in the eternal peace!
