Social media users flooded the internet on veteran newsreader Noxolo Grootboom's last day in the office. After 37 years, Grootboom's last day has been made extra special with tribute pouring in for her.
Her last broadcast was so important that even President Cyril Ramaphosa delayed his national address so as not to impose on her time. Initially, the president's broadcast was scheduled for 19:00 pm but this clashed with Grootboom's last appearance.
"Please note: Presidential address has moved from 19h00 to 19h30 to allow #SABC viewers to watch veteran newsreader #NoxoloGrootboom’s final bulletin as she retires after 37 years."
