“It is another sad moment of our times,” wrote Kaizer Chiefs chairperson Kaizer Motaung in a heart-warming tribute to the late City Press sports editor S’busiso Mseleku.

“I am sad because S’bu was an important part of our football. S’bu was one of the best journalists we’ve had in South Africa. He was not only a journalist, he loved football. I will remember his critical writing and mostly his humility.

“S’bu was a gentleman who loved football, in particular Kaizer Chiefs. But his love for Chiefs did not distract him from his work as a journalist. I have conducted several interviews with him and just this year he played a prominent role during our 50th anniversary celebrations in Phefeni [Soweto].

“He was full of life and conducted several sessions with aplomb. Little did we know that it was our parting shot with him.

“Given how S’bu was as a person – very energetic and active as he was – there will be many fond memories to comfort the family in this sad time. On behalf of the Kaizer Chiefs family, I wish to express my deepest, heartfelt condolences to the bereaved family and friends.

“Lala ngoxolo, Khosi” penned Motaung in the tribute posted on the Chiefs official website.

The PSL also expressed its sadness at the news of the passing of Mseleku.

In a statement on Wednesday, the PSL wrote: “Mseleku, who worked for City Press as a sports editor among his various roles in the media, [was] a permanent feature in South African football for more than two decades.

“He will always be remembered for his passion for local football and his work in shinning the spotlight on footballers in the PSL.

“The league conveys heartfelt condolences to the Mseleku family and his relatives during this difficult period.”
