SEVERAL people have offered to help injured boxer Sipho Delta Mukhithi, after reading about his plight in Sunday World.
The boxer, better known as The Lion said many people came to see him this week, offering to help.
Some people even came with school shoes for my kids. I was really touched. God is good. I would like to thank Sunday World for telling people about my story,” he said.
Lawyer Dalton Rapetsoa has offered to help Mukhithi for free.
I have read your story about the boxer who was involved in a motor vehicle accident. According to your article, he has not heard from that taxi driver or any taxi association.
I am an attorney practising in Pretoria. I may help him with regards to legal issues that he may have at this moment, especially those that are related to loss of his boxing career as a result of the motor vehicle accident.
I am willing to give him free legal opinion as part of my social responsibility programme and pro bono services that attorneys are required to give to the public,” said Rapetsoa.
Sifelani Malange of Malange Attorneys said they would assist Mukhithi with lodging a claim with the Road Accident Fund.
We would like to assist Sipho Mukhithi with regards to lodging his claim with the Road Accident Fund seeing that he was injured in a taxi accident. This is motivated by the fact that he is unable to maintain his dependants, something that he was able to do prior to his accident. We are willing to assist him at no cost upon his approval,” said Malange.
Mukhithi said he would make contact with the relevant parties.
The accident in April left him with a broken left leg and right arm. He said his boxing career was over and he was concerned about providing for his 17 kids. Boxing was my bread and butter. I don t have medical aid or [any] form of financial backing.”
