Orlando Pirates Football Club is saddened to learn of the passing of defender and legend Oscar “Jazzman” Dlamini.

“Gablaas” as he was affectionately known, was a member of the famous Clean Sweep of 1973.

The tough as teak defender also represented South Africa in the first mixed-raced team that defeated Argentina XI 5-0 in 1976.

All of us at Orlando Pirates Football Club throughout sub-Saharan Africa and elsewhere beyond our borders are imbued with sorrow after learning of the death of Mr Dlamini.

We convey our heartfelt and deepest sympathy to the Dlamini Family and pledge our profound moral support.

We supplicate that God gives his family fortitude at this moment of extreme grief and pain.
