Mornings never the same

It’s a sad morning as the whole country wakes up with half of the beloved Morning Live team on SABC2 missing. Since the news broke yesterday, of the sudden passing of Vuyo Mbuli a dark shadow has been cast over all of us.

We have not only lost a talented contributor and pioneer in the broadcast television, but also a philanthropist and a keen supporter of Madiba’s legacy. He was a Trustee of the Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund, as well as a member of its Finance Sub-Committee.

On hearing the sad news the Fund’s Finance and Audit Sub-Committee Chair Warren Clewlow: said: “Not only is the media world that has lost but also a number of interest groups where he served and the people he touched. We were certainly touched by Vuyo. Condolences to his family, and may his soul rest in peace.”

He was also a committed supporter of the Nelson Mandela Children’s Hospital initiative, always a phone call away and willing to contribute where he could. Vuyo was truly committed to being part of Madiba’s legacy, and making this a better world for our children.

During this difficult time, we extend our condolences to Vuyo’s family, friends and colleagues. Know that you are in our thoughts and prayers.

We say it once more with fond memories: “Shap-shap”.
