Werner Kok has pleaded with South Africa to help find his stolen Sevens jerseys.
Johannesburg, South Africa (03 December 2021) – South Africans have taken to social media to help former Blitzbok and current Sharks player Werner Kok find his stolen jerseys.
On Friday morning, the winger tweeted asking the country to help him, after all of his achievements were stolen from a storage facility in Cape Town.
“I have been dreading making this tweet but I have to get the word out. On the 1/12/2021 ALL of my Springbok Sevens jerseys (number 5) were stolen from a storage facility in CPT. 10 years of hard work stolen in 10 min. If you see or hear anything please please let me know.”
“Everything is gone all my achievements and special jerseys from Commonwealth to Olympics and every tournament in-between my heart is heavy because no amount of money will ever be able to replace this. A legacy I wanted to show my children, just taken.”
The tweets have since become national news that thousands of South Africans have been sharing, hoping that this turns into a good news story.
If you have any information, don’t hesitate to contact Werner Kok on his Twitter. Let’s try to create a Christmas miracle for the South African sportsman.
No amount of money can buy this 💔
