The Fees Must Fall protests had dire consequences for café employee Eddie at the University of Cape .
The family of Samora Msophi must sue Boxing SA for millions of rands for failing to ensure that all the required demands for a boxing tournament were met last weekend.
This is because Boxing SA are the custodians of boxing and the buck stops with them.
It must all be about the welfare of fighters. Had it been the case last weekend, I would definitely be venting my anger at other people rather than them regarding the conduct and the procedure which led to the untimely death of Msophi.
I strongly believe that Msophi would have lived had it not been for negligence, whether from his handlers, promoter, paramedics or the referee who handled his fight with Mfundo Gwayana at the Orient Theatre.
The bottom line is that BSA remained in charge of the proceedings.
I came under fire from boxing trainers and managers a few months back when I warned that their egos must not influence boxers' participation inside the ring.
The supervisor of the fight must be banned for life. He could have used his powers to either influence the stoppage or stop the fight himself when it became clear that the referee or Msophi's cornermen would not save the boy from total destruction.
But the cornermen are the worst. They are responsible for Msophi's death, and I say this without any fear. They would not want to lose against a Mzimase Mnguni boxer - nonsense - hence they encouraged the visibly troubled youngster to fight on.
No amount of money is worth a human being's life, no human being's life is worth any stupid belt. No amount of money will wipe away the tears of the family of the deceased, but still BSA must be taught a lesson for being negligent - a cool R10 million - so that they must take precautions in future.
