The highly esteemed EFC athlete Sibusiso Mdoko was attacked in a vicious car-jacking attempt in the Cape Town suburb of Dunoon on Sunday, the 2nd of September 2018 and he needs your help…
Sibusiso Mdoko was attacked by multiple assailants with knives and broken bottles. They attempted to steal his car and gain his bank account information. He lost consciousness during the attack and was transported to hospital where Constantia Insurance Group, official partner to the EFC organisation agreed to assist with Mdoko’s medical costs.
Although injured with multiple stab wounds, Sibusiso Mdoko is in a stable condition. “We were shocked to hear the news,” said EFC president Cairo Howarth. “Sibusiso has competed with us for many years, he is a courageous athlete and role model to many. He had also just begun a new career as an electrician, a double blow to an already horrendous situation.”
Howarth went on to thank Constantia Insurance Group who have kindly assisted Mdoko with his medical costs, despite their partnership agreement being tied to in-competition injury only. “As soon as we heard we contacted Constantia and explained the situation,” said Howarth. “Constantia didn’t hesitate, making funds available to assist Sibusiso.”
