Mabu Marweshe, of Marweshe Attorneys, a law firm that represents Mahlangu, said he couldn't provide an update on the former midfielder's at this time. According to a person close to Mahlangu, his BMW 4 Series was involved in an accident with a minibus taxi.
Images circulating on social media show a car that appears to be a wrecked BMW and a Toyota Hiace Quantum that has been overturned and extensively damaged. According to initial reports, more than one person was hurt and taken to the hospital in addition to Mahlangu.
Mahlangu, formerly Jabu Pule, was a player for Kaizer Chiefs, Orlando Pirates, SV Mattersburg in Austria, and Supersport United. Other vehicles appear to have been involved in the crash, according to photos taken at the scene. According to an unsubstantiated account, Mahlangu was driving while inebriated.
Mahlangu, played 99 times for Kaizer Chiefs and earned 20 Bafana Bafana caps. He was also a player of the Orlando Pirates. He is currently a soccer analyst and an ambassador for SuperSport United, a team for which he played briefly in late 2005.
Mabu Marweshe, of a law company that represents Mahlangu, acknowledged the accident but did not go into further information about his client's condition, since the retired player is being treated at the Far East Rand Hospital in Brakpan.
"We can confirm the accident happened involving our client and he is still in the hospital," Marweshe said as per Sowetan Live.
"As soon as the doctors have given the go-ahead to consult with us, we will be able to provide more information."
More information will be released as it becomes available.
