The ZAR100,000 award for missing BlitzBok memorabilia
REACTION: A reward of ZAR100,000 has been offered for “information leading to the recovery of Werner Kok’s BlitzBok jerseys,” after the South African was robbed last week.
Kok shared on social media the campaign that has been set up, which is in association with Richmark Holdings and SA Rugby Legends Association.
This comes a day after the 28-year-old Sharks player revealed all his jerseys and achievements during his time with the South Africa Sevens team were stolen earlier this week from a storage facility in Cape Town.
The Olympic Games bronze medalist showed his gratitude for the support he has received in a message.
“Never in my life have I experienced such kindness and generosity,” he wrote on his social media pages.
“Thank you to Gavin Varejes, Eduard Coetzee, SA Rugby Legends Association, Sharks Rugby and Richmark Holdings for what you have done for me.
“To every single person who has shared and helped spread the word you will never know how much I appreciate it. Truly overwhelmed by all of your support over the past few days!
“If you have any information please email – email@example.com.”
Werner Kok, who donned a BlitzBok jersey for over 10 years has unfortunately had all of his jerseys stolen from a storage unit in Cape Town.
