Zangqa is well known in South African rugby, having represented the Blitzboks in 21 tournaments on the World Rugby Sevens Series between 2007 and 2009.

A car accident in 2009 brought an unfortunate end to his playing career, but Zangqa made a successful transition into coaching, assisting Paul Treu with the Blitzboks before also working with Kenya and the Kings as a backline coach.

In recent times, he was coaching Germany's sevens and XVs sides.

The Kings are yet to announce a head coach, with former Springbok coach Peter de Villiers, current Samoa coach Steve Jackson and Cheetahs forwards coach Corniel van Zyl believed to be in line to replace Deon Davids.
