While SanParks launches an independent investigation into the matter, an international law firm is now providing Dlamini with legal advice to pursue further action.

In a Facebook post following weekend surgery, Dlamini has thanked his supporters.

He says he’s in a lot of pain, and can’t say when he will be back on his bike.

Dlamini will be receiving expert medical care in the coming weeks.
