South African International Shot Dead By Assailant


It was a dark moment for South African football as former Bafana Bafana goalkeeper Chesley Jaftha was shot dead in Gqeberha

The former Chippa United shot-stopper was murdered in his car while waiting due to a flat tyre.

An assailant got out of a Chevrolet and approached Jaftha’s before opening fire at him from close range.

He was rushed to a hospital nearby, where he later succumbed to his bullet wounds.

” Everyone at the club is deeply saddened to hear of the passing of our former MultiChoice Diski Challenge and feeder team goalkeeper Chesley Jaftha, at the tender age of 23″, Chippa United said.
