Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs chairman Kaizer Motaung has expressed his condolences to the family of Morgan Nkosi.
Nkosi passed away over the weekend and will be laid to rest on Saturday in Soweto.
Motaung praised the role Nkosi played in helping establish Chiefs in the early days.
He told the club's official website, "Morgan was one of the founder members of the club. He was there when we started Chiefs and he became very active in the supporters club."
The 71-year-old added, "We will remember him as one of the pillars that started the club because we needed support at the time."
Chiefs were formed in 1970 by Motaung, who named the club after himself and Atlanta Chiefs, a side he previously represented in the North American Soccer League.
