Former Springbok hooker Naka Drotské has had a good night and is more stable this morning than he was on Wednesday, says spokesperson at the MediClinic in Bloemfontein, Barbara Steenkamp.

Drotské is being treated in the Intensive Care Unit here. This comes as OFM News earlier reported that Drotské is fighting for his life following a setback on Tuesday night, which resulted in his hospitalisation due to internal bleeding.

Steenkamp could not provide further information as she said doctors had not yet done their morning rounds.

Meanwhile, police spokesperson in Gauteng, Kay Makhubela, said there have been no arrests in the matter relating to Drotské’s shooting. He was shot during an armed robbery on his brother’s small holding just outside Pretoria, roughly two weeks ago.

Makhubela had earlier said that two men were taken into questioning with regards to the shooting but there was not enough evidence to make arrests.
