Kungwane was popular among football fans in South Africa, and his death has certainly come as a huge loss to football in this country
His colleague at SuperSport International Robert Marawa broke the shocking news on his Twitter account on the same day.
"After being in ICU for the past two days it's really sad to have to announce the sad passing away of a brother & colleague RIP Shakes Kungwane," tweeted the Radio and TV sports personality.
Kungwane became popular during his days at AmaKhosi where he spent almost a decade as a player before moving to Manning Rangers in 1999.
He worked as a football analyst for SABC Sports before joining SuperSport International a few years ago.
Goal would like to send its heartfelt condolences to the Kungwane family for the loss of their son.
