“Henyekane was travelling with four other passengers when they were involved in a tragic motor vehicle accident. He was, unfortunately the only one to lose his life in this incident,” said the club in a released statement.
Henyekane started his professional career at Golden Arrows and spent six years at the Abafana Bes'thende before Mamelodi Sundowns lured the forward to Chloorkop.
The "Kimberley Express" as he is known as in the football fraternity then moved to Stars in 2014 on loan and has remained at Ea Lla Koto ever since.
The 31-year-old lost his brother, Joseph, in December last year.
This is the PSL's third loss in less than seven months as Senzo Meyiwa was also laid to rest after his tragic death in late October 2014.
Henyekane represented South Africa on nine occasions, but failed to find the net in Bafana Bafana colours.
