FORMER Warriors skipper and Highlanders legend Peter Ndlovu was on New Year’s Eve robbed of cash and his family’s travelling documents while on holiday in Zimbabwe, from his South African base.
Ndlovu, now manager at South African Absa Premier Soccer League champions, Mamelodi Sundowns, yesterday said he was supposed to have left for South Africa on Monday, but has been delayed due to the loss of family passports.
“They (the robbers) took my wife and two sons’ passports and money from our car,” he said.
“I am not really worried about the money, but (about) the passports.
“I was supposed to have gone back to South Africa yesterday (Monday), but I have had to prolong my stay because of the missing passports.”
Ndlovu said his passport had not been stolen, but he could not travel because of the situation his family was in.
The iconic Ndlovu posted on his social network Facebook page yesterday morning appealing to the robber to at least surrender the documents to the nearest police station, indicating he might know who stole from him.
“I am pleading with you who robbed our car at TM Hyper on the December 31 to please return or surrender the passports at the nearest police station so that we could travel with my family, please,” he wrote.
“Even if you surrender them at Entumbane, where you stay, it is okay.
“You know we know each other, but I don’t have to fight you over a three-year-old kid’s passport.
“What would you do with kids’ passports?
“Money you took and it’s fine.
“Little did I know when you greeted me and asked for a Christmas box, you had those intentions.”
Ndlovu said he understood the alleged thief’s situation, but this did not have to jeopardise his family’s travel arrangements.
“As long as I don’t get my kids passports, my friend, I will put a reward for anyone who calls the police about you,” he continued.
“I will also submit to the police a blown up picture of you at Entumbane and Hyper, where you steal from.”
