Furthermore it has been reported that all the belongings including the furniture which were inside the eight room house with a double garage were burnt to ashes and that there were no casualties as there was no one inside the house. A devastated and traumatized Ramagalela is qouted, "obviously I'm very hurt because if you come to think about it, it takes time to build a house".

Furthermore he would go to share that, "with a career like ours, to start again is a mission on its own. Im seriously hurt I won't lie. But the most important thing is that no one lost their lives". The 32 year old footballer would further go to mention that at this point in time he does not suspect any foul play but would leave the matter to the authorities as he was not on the premises when the incident occurred.
