The Malawian Football fraternity is currently receiving tributes following the passing of ex-Malawi coach Jack Chamangwana.

Chamangwana passed away in Blantyre on Sunday at the age of 61 after suffering from high blood pressure.

The former Flames and Kaizer Chiefs (in South Africa) defender was the second most capped player in Malawi's history, making 133 appearances.

Before his death, he worked as Technical Director for Malawian Super League side Be Forward Wanderers.

"We are saddened by Chamangwana's death. It has come as a shock and we cannot believe he is gone," said Be Forward Wanderers chairman Gift Mkandawire.

On the other hand, the man who partnered with Sylvester ‘City’ Kole at Amakhosi between 1986 and 1988 has also been remembered in South Africa.

Amakhosi chairman Kaizer Motaung also expressed a message of condolence to the family of the legend.

"On behalf of the Kaizer Chiefs family, I would like to send love and peace and heartfelt condolences to the bereaved family, friends, Wanderers FC and the Malawian football family," said Motaung.

Chamangwana made his international debut in a friendly match against Kenya in Lilongwe in 1975 at the age of 18 under the guidance of Brazilian, Wonder Moreira.

In his coaching career, he also coached Tanzanian club Young Africans before returning home to become Malawi's assistant national team coach to Young Chimodzi in 2014.
