The family of popular Johannesburg doctor and radio personality Sindi van Zyl confirmed her death on Saturday.

The family statement said: "The Van Zyl family humbly thank everyone who stood together with them recently to help raise funds for Sindi’s hospital bill, in addition to the national outpour of prayer, love and support for her.

"Sadly she passed away on Saturday morning, April 10, in Johannesburg while in hospital.

"known by her friends and family, she was a great doctor, true friend and sister. Her love for family, friends, work and community is well known.

"Sindi always offered support and great advice to educate those around her. Not only was she a beacon of love and light on her Kaya FM show 'Sidebar with Sindi' and all her social media platforms, but she genuinely loved and gave endlessly to all she knew with grace and kindness.
