Chairman Kaizer Motaung’s statement on the passing of Mr Cyril Kobus

I have learnt with sadness the passing on of Mr Cyril Kobus who was instrumental in his role during the formation of the National Soccer League in 1985.

I got to know Mr Kobus during our days as youngsters – I played for Orlando Pirates and he was with City Rocks. We also went to the same school, Orlando West High in Soweto. Mr Kobus was an intelligent man who always enjoyed the use of big words in discussions.

No doubt Mr Kobus played a key role in the development of football in our country. His name is cast in stone in the history books of our football.

I wish to express my heartfelt condolences to the bereaved family and friends. I trust they will find solace by reading from Psalms 46:1 which says: “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.”

May his soul rest peacefully.
