A shocking news emerged from South Africa as two club cricket coaches were recently murdered in a serious attack at the Laudium Stadium in Pretoria, South Africa, located 17 km east of the capital city. The dead bodies of the coaches were found on the ground in the morning this Thursday. Two other coaches were brutally injured in the attack.

The coaches who died were later identified as 24-year old Given Nkosi, and 26-year old Charlson Maseko. The two injured coaches were Kagiso Masubelele, 27, KFC Mini-Cricket coordinator and Laudium Hub Head Coach and coordinator Obed Harvey Agbomadzie, 27.

The reason for the attack is still unknown and the police are investigating the matter. Cricket South Africa (CSA) said the attack came as a huge shock and wished for the speedy recovery of the injured personnel.

CSA expressed condolences

“These are all dedicated cricket administrators and coaches who have been making a huge difference to the communities in which they operate, providing an important source of upliftment and hope, particularly to our youth. Indeed, what they have been doing goes far beyond the game of cricket,” said the Chief Executive of CSA, Haroon Lorgat, according to Sports24.

On behalf of the CSA Family I extend our deepest condolences to the family, friends and colleagues of those who have lost their lives, and we pray that those who are injured will make a quick and complete recovery,” added Lorgat.

“This is devastating news for the Northerns cricket community,” added Northerns Cricket Union Chief Executive Jacques Faul. They have been a highly valued and integral part of our talent pipeline development programme, particularly in the Laudium community,” quoted Jacques Faul, the Chief Executive of Northern Cricket Union.

“On behalf of the Northerns cricket family I extend our deepest sympathy, prayers and support to the family, friends and colleagues of all involved,” added Faul.
