Former Pretoria Callies (then Bantu Callies) player, Selby Busang, will be buried on Saturday in Atteridgeville. Busang passed away last week Thursday at the Kalafong Hospital due to natural causes. This was confirmed by neighbour, Mohau Lebethe.
The versatile Busang of the generation of former Pretoria Callies player, Lucas Masterpieces Moripe, played as a striker during his heyday, possessing prolific dribbling skills. He later played as a midfielder and then a defender.
“His talent was ignored by Bantu Callies. He then joined Pretoria Pepsi and later on Bantu Callies wanted him back. He then joined Bantu Callies, which later changed the name to Pretoria Callies. He once contained the great Teenage Dladla for the entire 90 minutes. At the time, Dladla was unstoppable. We have lost a legend,” says Lebethe.
According to Lebethe, Busang’s memorial service, organised by community members, will take place tomorrow in Atteridgeville.
