The heartless gunmen had struck and unleashed mayhem against the sportsmen.
The Former Springbok hooker Naka Drotské’s condition appears to have worsened to critical, his brother, Tinus, and cousin, Steven Drotské, stated on Wednesday.

“Please pray for Naka Drotské, he is fighting for his life, in critical condition in ICU. I truly believe our Heavenly Father has got some bigger plans for him and his future,” he wrote.

Drotské was shot three times during a robbery on November 29 at his brother Tinus’s smallholding in Kameeldrift, Pretoria. He was shot in the right side of the chest, stomach and right arm.
He was with former Springbok and Cheetahs teammate Os du Randt, Tinus and Tinus’s three children when four men barged into the house at 9.15pm.
