Lerato Shabangu, a former South African football sensation who gained prominence in the 1990s, has experienced a tragic downfall. His professional journey began in 1992, playing for local Pretoria teams, eventually leading to his stint with the Mamelodi Sundowns club in 1995, where he clinched numerous championship titles.

During the peak of his career, Shabangu earned recognition as one of the finest players of his generation, enjoying immense popularity among fans. Coupled with his talent, he was a well-compensated athlete, amassing considerable wealth.

However, after his retirement from football in 2006, Shabangu’s financial downfall commenced. Engaging in extravagant spending, he indulged in luxury cars, houses, and lavish parties, depleting his wealth rapidly.

As the years passed, Shabangu faced severe financial turmoil, necessitating the sale of all his properties. Eventually, he found himself residing in a modest rented house.

“I blew all my money on useless things because I was always guaranteed a salary the following month,” Chabangu once told local media in an interview.

“We used to finish training by 11 a.m., and thereafter, you are free to do whatever you want. We would go to Shisanyama after training and chill there over a few drinks, and it just became a habit,” he continued.

Beyond financial woes, Shabangu grappled with alcoholism, facing multiple arrests for drunk driving and a car accident in 2017.

Presently, Lerato Shabangu lives in poverty, relying on the support of his family and friends. His story serves as a poignant reminder of the repercussions of mismanaging wealth and life post-football.

“We have come up with a security strategy that will permit the security forces to secure the population and ensure free circulation. We have reinforced security across the region, where terrorist groups targeted the innocent population,” Governor Lele Lafrique stated.

“Investigations are ongoing to identify the perpetrators of such an act and sanction them within the laws of the country,” he added.

The hospital shared on Facebook, “We successfully delivered a boy and a girl through a cesarean section. This story showcases not only medical success but also the strength and resilience of the human spirit.”

Safina Namukwaya, the nursing mother, revealed in an interview with the privately owned NTV channel that she had given birth to her second child in three years. She had previously welcomed a girl in 2020. Ms. Namukwaya faced multiple challenges during the recent pregnancy, including the desertion by the children’s father, but she expressed her joy at the arrival of the twins.

“Men don’t like to be told that you are carrying more than one child. Ever since I was admitted here, my man has never shown up,” she revealed.

Ms. Namukwaya acknowledged the difficulties ahead in raising the children but emphasized her happiness after enduring years of stigma and ridicule for her childlessness. She shared a past incident, saying, “One time, a very young boy heckled me, saying my mother had cursed me to die without a child.”

According to the NHS, In vitro fertilization (IVF) is one of several techniques available to help people with fertility problems have a baby. During IVF, an egg is removed from the woman’s ovaries and fertilized with sperm in a laboratory. The fertilized egg, called an embryo, is then returned to the woman’s womb to grow and develop.
