Both played together at Golden Arrows during the 2013/14 season.
Khenyeza believes the country has lost one of the future coaches in Bartman, having known him as a player and also for his work at Maritzburg United coaching the goalkeepers.
"He was very passionate about the game and had top quality goalkeeping skills as a player and coach. In him we had a very intelligent man who understands the game, it's a huge loss," said Khenyeza.
Another player who worked with Bartman at Maritzburg, Mohale Monate, didn't have much to say as he was interviewed by the club, and you could see he was emotional.
"I'm shocked, I don't know what to say, may God be with his family and us, may his soul rest in peace."
