Pretoria – The public has been asked to help find Vodacom Bulls rugby player Sbu Nkosi who was last heard from more than three weeks ago.
Initially, the club was of the view that the 25-year-old rugby star had gone awol, but that eventually changed to concern after all attempts to reach him failed.
Commenting on the inexplicable disappearance of the player, the Blue Bulls Company on Saturday said, “it can confirm that Vodacom Bulls contracted player, Sbu Nkosi has been absent without leave for the past three weeks”.
The company added: “Nkosi’s last known contact with any executive, management, or playing squad member is Friday 11 November 2022”.
Narrating events since then, the Blue Bulls said after numerous failed attempts, which include but are not limited to phone calls, texts messages, calls to relatives, partner, and close friends as well as four house visits to his known place of residence, Nkosi was reported missing.
The company said it reported Nkosi as a missing person at the Brooklyn Police Station, which was subsequently transferred the matter to Sunnyside Police Station, in Pretoria on Thursday 17 November 2022.
“This resulted from the grave worry and concern of everyone at Loftus as well as the need for the expert assistance of the South African Police Services,” the Blue Bulls said.
“We appreciate both the public and media interest in the matter, as we all share the same concerns about the player’s safety.
“‘However, we ask that you understand that we cannot make any further comments on the matter as it now sits with the South African Police Services.”
Anyone with further information about the whereabouts or information that may assist the police in discharging their responsibility, please contact the Sunnyside Police Station on +27 12 422 3600 or contact Crime Stop on +27 8600 10111.
