Moeti family spokesperson, Victor Rakhale has told Robert Mararwa on #MSW that the family is still in shock after the sudden passing of John Moeti.

The legendary Bafana Bafana midfielder, who was part of the 1996 AFCON winning team, died on Monday after “receiving specialist medical care” for several months.

The 55-year-old was also a crucial member of the 1995 Orlando Pirates squad that claimed the CAF Champions League.

“The family is saddened, he was ill for about eight months. Even though it was for long, it’s still unexpected. His wife and kids are devastated. When he left football, he and his wife started a religiously based foundation. They taught kids leadership and life skills through football”.
