Sizabantu Khoza Pleads For Financial Help On Behalf Of His Unwell 12 Year Old Son3 years ago
Former Highlanders legend Sizabantu Khoza has taken to the public to plead with the masses to help his 12-year-old son Bonginkosi with money for his treatment after young Bonginkosi was diagnosed with septic arthritis in May 2020, the Chronicle reports.
According to the publication, Bonginkosi is also a prominent athlete in his own right as he is a two-time championship winner with Mountain Climbers and Highlanders Under-14 badges under his belt.
Speaking about the condition that might dim young Bonginkosi’s bright future Khoza explained how the condition started till the doctors confirmed that it was indeed septic arthritis and said:
(Bonginkosi) first complained about feeling pain from the groin and later started limping. The boy was taken to hospital where tests were conducted and doctors confirmed that he had septic arthritis. He then underwent an operation. The infection somehow affected his lungs and he had to stay in the intensive care unit for 10 days.
Last week he suddenly said he was feeling extreme pain on his tandem muscle and couldn’t even move his leg. He is still under the doctor and going for his dressing every five days and every time he goes for wound dressing. I need to have a special bandage which costs US$10 and I am struggling to raise that amount. What pains me most now is that my boy is always crying in pain and some of the words he utters while crying really make me wonder if I am a good father to him.

But I am trying my best to ensure that he heals and returns to football, a game he loves so much. Another doctor recently told me to buy medication called Stemcell, which costs US$70, an amount beyond me at the moment.
According to Khoza, young Bonginkosi is trying to walk with the aid of a walking frame.
