Tributes pour in for former Wits captain Yohane after murder in South Africa

According to reports, Yohane – who formerly played for Zimbabwe and was part of the 2004 African Nations Cup team – was carjacked and shot dead this past weekend. His body was reported to have been found in Mzimhlophe, Soweto, this week.

RIP: FORMER BIDVEST WITS CAPTAIN MURDERED IN SOUTH AFRICA!

At the time of his retirement from the game, Yohane held the record for most appearances at Bidvest Wits after playing for them over a period stretching between 1997 to 2006.

The 48-year-old played for Fire Batteries in Zimbabwe before moving to South Africa where he played for African Wanderers, AmaZulu, Wits and AK FX.

The former Warriors star was last attached at Wits as a university development team coach before the club folded in 2020. Some reports have said he was now serving as an “e-hailing” taxi driver.

Tributes continue to pour in for Yohane after the tragic news:
