SA Boxing Champ Died A Hero Saving Daughter
Latest Update On The Murder of Corrie Sanders by three Black Genocide Soldiers
Pretoria – Ex-world heavyweight champion Corrie Sanders died while shielding his daughter during a robbery at a restaurant in Brits on Saturday.Sanders, who was shot in the stomach, died in the Kalafong Hospital on Sunday after undergoing emergency surgery. He was shot while lying over his 15-year-old daughter Marinique. He’d whispered to her to pretend that she was dead, Beeld reported.
His ex-wife, Sunette, said he’d been a world hero in his boxing heyday and he’d died one. She said Corrie had told her in the ambulance to take their children home, as he didn’t want them to see him like that. Corrie’s brother, Mike, said the three robbers had fired indiscriminately. “They fired about 30 shots.”
“There were 48 people at the restaurant, it’s just off the main road. We arrived at around 16:00 on Saturday. At about 18:00, as it was getting dark, Mike [Corrie’s brother] gave a speech. Then the grandfather stood up and offered a prayer. “That’s when we heard three or four shots. At first we thought it was the kids playing around. Then we realised it was serious. “There were three of them. Armed with pistols. They were telling everyone to lie down and give them their wallets and cellphones. They didn’t take much.
An eyewitness said, “I think they shot him as a lesson to the rest of us, to say they were serious.”
A major South African Black TV news agency reported the genocide attack as follows:
“Corrie didn’t try anything heroic, he was just in the wrong place at the wrong time,” Sowetanlive reported
People express their shock and sadness at this senceless murder read below:
Olympic swimming champion Roland Schoeman expressed his shock on Twitter, saying “Can’t describe in words how sad I am to hear about the senseless murder of my friend Corrie Sanders. RIP”.
Recent Olympic gold medallist Cameron van der Burg, who along with Schoeman also hails from Pretoria – as did Sanders – said: “Rest in peace Corrie. A champion of the world”.

WHISNews21: This extermination of the White South African population happens everyday, this very same execution style murder at restaurants and even private home parties, happen very often in South Africa. This time it made world news because a famous and very popular South African sports hero was murdered, but be aware that this is not just a “One Hit Wonder” like they say in the music business, this kind of situation has had many “Hits” and this will not be the last one. The next one will probably just be an ordinary Joe and you will not even hear about him or her. One thing that happens is that the families of all victims suffer the same terrible loss and find it hard to come to terms with the violence that we all have to sort of accept while living in South Africa.
Police spokesperson Brigadier Thulani Ngubane said on Sunday night that no arrests had been made.
Original Report Below
Pretoria, South Africa – Former heavyweight boxing champion Corrie Sanders was shot and killed on Sunday during an armed robbery at a family style restaurant near Brits, a town in South Africa
Rapport a local South African Newspaper reported that Sanders was shot in the stomach and hand. Sanders later died of his injuries after being transferred from one hospital to another as most South African hospitals these days are not equipped to deal with serious wounds, and therefore regrettably died in the Kalafong Hospital where he was finally transferred to.
Sanders was celebrating the birthday of his daughter when three armed men arrived in the restaurant and shot randomly on Saturday night, Brigadier Thulani Ngubane also confirmed that Sanders, 46, was shot in the hand and stomach. Ngubane said it appeared that gunmen went to the restaurant with the aim to rob it. What the police neglected to say was to rob and kill….as shooting of unarmed white people was obviously in the spirit of genocide. The wallets and cellphones were not enough, innocent blood had to be spilled. “They shot randomly at the families at the restaurant and took a cellphone of the daughter who was turning 21 years and they also took a bag of another patron in the premises,” he said.
Thatch Haven Restaurant owner Johan de Jager told Eyewitness News that a group of men stormed into the restaurant and opened fire. “Three guys came inside and just started shooting. During the shooting, they shot Corrie.”
Harold Volbrecht, who used to train Sanders, was shocked at the news. “It’s very sad. My heart is broken. It’s just terrible. I can’t believe it happened,” said an emotional Volbrecht.
Kallie Kriel of AfriForum who happened to be at the Thatch Haven restaurant at the same time, when his son with five of his friends narrowly missed the hail of bullets, came running to tell him that shots had been fired at the restaurant. Kriel found Corrie Sanders lying outside on the ground in a pool of blood. At that point Corrie was still alive and in lot of pain, from the fatal wound to his stomach.
The saddest part of all this is that yesterday it was a Boxing Champ,
today it will be a farmer, and tomorrow it will be a doctor, a nurse,
a pilot or even a homeless person, but the fact is it will happen.
It’s just a case of whose number get’s drawn today.
I almost forgot to mention that a police spokesperson
confirmed the robbery and said a man had been shot and no arrests have been made.
– And so it will be written and forgotten
