Many South Africans on the local or international surf scene will know Bongani Xulu’s friendly face from his place in the judges tower. Others may know him from his post as lifeguard on KZN’s shores. His house was recently broken into by thieves who stole everything – including his passport with the visa he needs for the USA where he is supposed to work at the ISA World Adaptive Champs. Read the post below from our WSL Regional Manager to find out how you can help a brother out –
I am sure most of you know the always happy, always smiling, always friendly Bongani Xulu.
Bongani Xulu’s house was broken into on Sunday while he was out for dinner with his family.
The thieves stole everything in his home. This included his three young sons clothes, shoes and toys, his and his wife’s shoes, bags and clothes and all their sheets and bedding.
They also took his personal items, passport and of course his luxury items such as a sound system and TV.
He is particularly worried about getting a new passport and visa in time for his trip to the USA to work on the ISA World Adaptive Champs in just two weeks time.
We need to help him through this tough time.
