Chiefs Defender Fleurs Gunned Down In Hijacking

Kaizer Chiefs defender Luke Fleurs has tragically passed away after being shot during a hijacking on Wednesday.

The 24-year-old joined Chiefs in October after leaving SuperSport United and despite not making his debut yet, was still considered one of the brightest defensive prospects in South African football.

A family member confirmed to iDiski Times on Wednesday evening that the former Ubuntu Academy development product passed on today after being shot during a hijacking.

Fleurs had racked up 70 appearances for the Matsatsantsa, scoring twice, after joining the club from Ubuntu FC in July 2018.

We at iDiski Times extend our heartfelt condolences to the Fleurs family, Kaizer Chiefs and those closest to Luke during this incredibly challenging moment.
