Emotional send-off for former Kaizer Chiefs star who was beaten to death

Family, friends and former colleagues of Lucky Maselesele may have accepted that he has died, but they are struggling to come to terms with the manner in which he lost his life.

According to reports, he was killed by a group of community members after he was allegedly caught stealing electrical cables.

On Saturday, his loved ones gathered at God Never Fails church in Alexandra to bid farewell to the former Kaizer Chiefs and Maritzburg United star.Lucky Maselesele1

His daughter, Lethabo Maselesele, said in a moving tribute: “I’m sad, heartbroken and in pain about the way you left. However, I know there are cold and evil people who do evil things.”

She shared how much she adored her father.

“Daddy, I love you so much. I know that you loved me because you told me all the time. I am going to miss you, your hugs and kisses. I’m going to miss you spoiling me with treats, watching me play cricket and soccer, and cheering me up, saying ‘bathathe Ponkie’.”

Football legends Peter Khoabane, Bennett Chenene, Alfred Phiri, Finki Sekete and Cosmos Zwane were among those who attended the funeral.

Cosmos said: “It is difficult to talk about Lucky. The person he was and how he died are completely different.”

He described him as a people’s person.

“I’m certain he did not leave his football T-shirts for his kids because he was a giving person. The only things his kids will have are his photos. He was jolly, and had his own funny dance moves that would make you laugh. He didn’t even care about his Kaizer Chiefs statues. He was a human being before his profession.”

Friend Mxolisi Silango told mourners that he would miss his journeys to training sessions with Lucky.
