Former Kaizer Chiefs defender and coach Jack Chamangwana has passed away from an illness at the age of 61 in his native Malawi.

According to publications Maravi Post and Malawi24, the Flames legend died on Sunday, a week after being admitted to Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital with high blood pressure.

Chamangwana, who was working as a technical director at Be Forward Wanderers, is his country's second most capped player with 133 international appearances and also coached the national team.

Chamangwana linked up with Chiefs as a player in 1986 where he was affectionately known as 'Black Stone', and then held the reins at Amakhosi from 1988 to 1989.


He is considered amongst Malawi's greatest players, alongside the likes of former Free State Stars coach Kinnah Phiri, ex-Orlando Pirates and Bloemfontein Celtic playmaker Ernest Mtawali, one-time Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Chance Gondwe and Peterkins Kaira.
