Who Was Lawrence Masinge?

Lawrence Masing was a 40 years old fitness coach. According to News24, the fitness coach was part of a Department of Sport, Arts and Culture-endorsed program to encourage youngsters to exercise.

Masinge was a group fitness instructor extraordinaire, specializing in functional training, toning, weight-loss, total body strength, and conditioning as he advertised himself on his Instagram. He mainly worked from his house in Pretoria.

He calls his exercises “LM Workouts” and claims he is neither a bodybuilder nor an athlete but rather a group exercise instructor who aspires to look like both.



Fitness Coach Shot And Murdered

On Wednesday night, an armed robber shot and killed Lawrence Masinge, a prominent Gauteng personal trainer; in the midst of a hail of gunshots, more than 200 people were in an online Zoom video chat training session with him.

One of the students from the online session who witnessed the murder talked to The South African on the condition of anonymity.

She stated the class arrived at around 6.30 p.m. for a workout with Masinge, but only 36 minutes in, she heard the first gunshot, which she described as a “loud bang.”

She claimed that his internet clients were trying to figure out where Masinge lived so they could send help when a woman appeared on the Zoom call screen and dialed 911.

After dialing, the cops quickly arrived at the spot and took immediate necessary actions. However, we are still unaware of the identity of the culprit.
