Tragedy struck when Werner Kok, a former member of South Africa's award-winning Blitzboks who won numerous competitions and awards, lost all of his rugby jersey's he had collected over the years.
Some of them have sentimental value while others have quite a significant financial value.
His storage unit was broken into and his jerseys were stolen. He had represented South Africa for ten years in the national sevens team.
A reward has been posted for information that leads to the recovery of the jerseys.
"In partnership with Richmark Holdings and the SA Rugby Legends, a reward of R100’000 is being offered for information leading to the recovery of these jerseys that are priceless to Werner and which hold endless memories of a proud and distinguished Seven’s career."
This is what social media users had to say about the situation
"This is so painful. A man who gave us so much joy with the Blitsboks. But we are a nation of thieves, looters, wife beaters, nto to mention murderers, with 4 of our cities being deemed the most dangerous vmcities on the planet a few weeks ago. Sorry, Werner. "
Jenny Lee Le Grange:
"Some really thoughtless comments here Hope the thieving s#!|$ get caught and Werner’s jerseys returned!!"
"Staff need to be investigated. No chance this could have been done without inside info."
