Family and friends gathered at the Collage Gemeenskapskerk Community Church soccer field in Pretoria to pray for Len Cloete, the man wounded in a shooting at a Muldersdrift lodge earlier this month.
Cloete remains in hospital.
Cloete’s wife Chantal, has shared an emotional post on Facebook.
“As I write this, I’m sitting at your bedside in hospital, holding your hand with rivers of tears running down my face and I’m wondering how it came to be that we’re here in this living hell?
“I kiss every part of your body hoping you would open your eyes and tell me ‘I love you!’
“Each time I look at you my heart, I break some more. Your eyes are etched with pain, you look so weak and exhausted. But I can still see that you are fighting. And I know God is in control and he will bring you back to me and your kids,” she said.
Cloete has seven children. In a recent interview with Jacaranda, Chantal said Cloete remains in a critical condition in hospital.
She said he was on life support and medical teams were going to assess the damage to his brain. She said the bullet is still lodged in his head.
