The wife of the late Kaizer Chiefs legend Patrick “Ace” Ntsoelengoe, Thato, who passed away in the early hours of Friday due to a Covid-19 coronavirus-related illness, will be remembered for her big heart and love for people, her friends told City Press.

“Just like her name says, Thato had love for everyone no matter whether you are poor or rich. We are truly heartbroken, but her love and warmth will live on,” said Shakes Shimane Molapisi, who was a childhood friend since 1984.

He said that it was a pity that she was going to be buried under the Covid-19 burial regulations, with no crowds of mourners allowed to attend.
