Lehari said Masinga assisted many soccer legends of the North West.
Former soccer player and a friend, Eric September said his passing was painful and sad. “This pain has taught me that grave has no age. We have lost a person who made it easy for every person to play soccer,” he said.
Alex “Goldfinger” Shakoane from Mamelodi Sundowns told Masinga’s wife Ntombi Nombewu that the club will take care of the education of Chippa’s three children.
He said immediately when he heard that he was not well, Sundowns pledged money for his treatment.
“But he died before we could give it to him. The money will go to his family but we will also make sure that his children get educated,” he said.
Masinga will be buried in Khuma on Thursday.
