South Africa mourns the death of Xolani Gwala

South Africa is mourning the death of seasoned broadcaster Xolani Gwala. The star lost his battle to colon cancer at the age of 44.

Xolani’s family confirmed the news on 702 via a statement. It reads in part: “Just over two years ago, our beloved and well-respected media broadcaster and my dearest partner, Xolani Gwala, informed his Radio 702 listeners and colleagues that he had been diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer. The children and I, and the rest of the family, are devastated to share with you that our dearest XG, father, friend, broadcasting icon and campaigner for cancer awareness, tragically lost his brave battle against this ferocious disease today.”

The family also expressed their gratitude for the massive support since the announcement of his illness. “Since the public announcement in September 2017, myself and Xolani, together with our families, have been deeply touched by the massive outpourings of love and ongoing support from so many South Africans. Xolani was an inspiration and mentor to so many colleagues, friends and listeners over the years. We thank you for your heart-felt messages. These have meant so much to us. Siyabonga!”

Take a look at the full statement.
