Former Bafana defender dies



Former Bafana Bafana defender Jeffrey Ntuka was allegedly stabbed to death on Friday night in Kroonstad.

SuperSport.com called Ntuka’s mobile number, and Abigal Temeki, who claims to be Ntuka’s girlfriend, answered the phone and confirmed the news.

Temeki alleges that the Free State-born defender was stabbed to death by his “ex-friend” who played with him at the School of Excellence.

“They were dropping me off at my place and then Jeffrey asked for a lighter and the next minute he was down, stabbed in the neck and chest. On our way to the hospital he was talking but then suddenly became silent and was declared dead at the Boitumelo Hospital," Temeki told SuperSport.com

SuperSport.com spoke to Maselela Langa, a police spokesperson, who confirmed that a case has been opened at Maokeng Police Station in Free State.

“It is true that Jefrey Ntuka was stabbed by a friend after they had a quarrel over a box of matches. He died in the early hours of this morning. We have the suspect’s name but we can’t reveal it. He is still at large. We have launched a man-hunt and hope we will get him before the end of the day today," Maselela said.

Ntuka was once in the books of English Premier League side Chelsea, playing for their juniors, before moving to KVC Westerlo in Belgium.

He returned to South Africa to play for Kaizer Chiefs and later SuperSport United.
