Banele Sindani, the former SA Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (Sascoc) and Athletics SA CEO, was shot and killed at his home in Ruimsig.
702/CapeTalk presenter Redi Tlhabi on Tuesday spoke to Joe Morris, the race director for the Soweto Marathon, about the untimely passing of Sindani.
I spoke to his cousin and what we are aware of is that it was a robbery at his home, he got shot. We are devastated and the entire athletics fraternity is devastated as well.— Joe Morris, Soweto Marathon race director
Morris said Sindani will be missed in the Soweto Marathon Trust as one of the role players who made a difference.
