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.”
