Ambassador Mahlangu 2

Ambassador Mninwa Mahlangu extended his heartfelt condolences to Mrs Louise Mokone, wife of South African football legend Dr Steve “Kalamazoo” Mokone, who passed on last night.

Dr Mokone was the first black South African soccer player to play in Europe and regarded as one of the greatest footballer South Africa has ever produced.

Dr Mokone was awarded by South Africa’s Presidency, The Order of Ikhamanga in Gold during the first National Orders awards in 2003, for exceptional achievement in the field of soccer and an outstanding contribution to the development of non-racial sport.

“The passing of Dr Mokone is a huge loss and our condolences are extended to his family and all those who have been touched by this great South African son” the Ambassador said.
