MAN KILLED FOR WATCHING WORLD CUP

SOUTH AFRICA – one man’s desire to watch the World Cup would end up costing¬†him dearly!
Sports don’t always have the positive impact we hope they’d have. The Associated Press reports that police have said that a South African man who wanted to watch a World Cup match¬†instead of a religious program was beaten to death by his family in the northeastern part of the country.
David Mokoeya, a 61-year-old man from the small village of Makweya, Limpopo province, fought with his wife and two children for the remote control on Sunday because he wanted to watch Germany play Australia in the World Cup. The others, however, wanted to watch a gospel show.
“He said, ‘No, I want to watch soccer,” police spokesman Mothemane Malefo said Thursday. “That is when the argument came about. In that argument, they started assaulting him.”
Malefo said Makoeya got up to change the channel by hand after being refused the remote control and was attacked by his 68-year-old wife Francina and two children, 36-year-old son Collin and 23-year-old daughter Lebogang.
Malefo said he was not sure what the family used to kill Makoeya.
“It appears they banged his head against the wall,” Malefo said. “They phoned the police only after he was badly injured, but by the time the police arrived the man was already dead.”
