Bhamjee was one of the NSL founders which was established in 1985.
The Premier Soccer League (PSL) confirmed the sad news in a statement released on Tuesday.
“The PSL Executive Committee and member clubs are saddened by the loss of Mr Bhamjee. We recognize his role in the formation of the NSL and the building of the brand NSL,” PSL said in a press release.
“Our condolences go out to the children (Mohamed, Fazel, Yusuf and Nadira) and the entire Bhamjee family.
“We supplicate that God gives them fortitude at this moment of their extreme grief and pain.”
The South African football top-flight will observe a moment of silence ahead of this week’s DStv Premiership and GladAfrica Championship fixtures commencing today until the end of the weekend.
