It goes without saying that April 2017 will go down in history as one of the saddest months in Botswana. Just this morning hip hop artist and media personality Steez was buried after losing his life in a tragic road accident. A few days ago Township Rollers player, Gofaone Tiro also lost his life tragically at training, now we receive the sad news that Botswana international junior welterweight boxer Herbert Nkabiti is no more.
Herbert sustained head injuries Friday night in a fight with South African Willers Baloyi and was rushed to hospital. Nkabiti died in hospital in Vosloorus on Saturday evening. He leaves behind his wife and 4 month old daughter, and we send our sincere condolence to the family.
