Xolani Gwala passed away very recently and on 1 November South Africans learned about his tragic death.

Tributes to the late broadcaster have been flooding the social media streets and Radio 702, where many of us got to know Xolani, also paid their respects to him.
The tribute, which looks at his career of more than 2 decades, stated, in part:
"A journalist, a gentleman, a fierce proponent of democracy. Xolani Gwala has been a steadfast companion and champion for South Africa, on the air and off over his 24-year career. He was irrepressible, kind and always respectful."
Xolani's death leaves behind a whole in South African hearts and his absence will be felt forever more.
