“They vandalised everything they came across. They took everything: stock, machinery, cables, computers, just everything,” former Orlando Pirates legend Lekgwathi said as quoted by DailySun.
“I don’t know where to start now in rebuilding my business. This was my only means of sustaining my life and make a living for my family after retiring from Orlando Pirates.
“They say soccer players waste money and retire poor. I thought I’ve learnt and wanted to be different and start something. This too was helping the people of Soweto in my eatery where I employed people. Now it’s just gone, gone, just like that.”
