Kaizer Chiefs fans were deeply shocked last night, when news emerged that one of the club's most promising youngsters in history, had sadly passed away
And although the cause of his death is not yet known at this point in time, his former Chiefs' teammate and friend, Isaac Mabotsa confirmed the news, but refused to delve deep into details regarding to Maselesele's death.
"I can confirm the sad news, but at the moment I request that we be given time to come to terms with what has happened. I am at his home as I speak, but please understand, I won’t make any further comment on the matter," said Mabotsa.
The Gomora-born star who was promoted to the club's first team in 1998 was a troubled man during his heyday.
In an interview with SowetanLive in 2020, a remorseful Maselesele revealed that he was actually the first South African player to test positive for Cocaine Drug, which he said was a regrettable thing for him.
"I was the first player to test positive for cocaine in SA and I'm not proud to say that. Listen to my story‚ after the two-year layoff. I tried to play everywhere‚ I tried to revive my career‚ now I had a stigma," Maselesele related his story in 2020.
And one is not really attempting to suggest that Maselesele could have died from cocaine use as his use of the substance was many years ago and he had since indicated that he quit such destructive behaviour.
Chiefs supporters took to social media platform twitter to send their messages of commiserations to his family, many went as far as relating some of their fondest memories watching him in action.
Of course some, lamented the fact that the midfielder could not last longer at Chiefs due to a combination of competition for places and bad behaviour.
The OnlineNewzBible team sends its most sincere condolences to the Maselesele family, May His Soul Repose Peacefully.
