President Cyril Ramaphosa has declared a Special Provincial Official Funeral Category 2 for journalist and popular talk show host Xolani Gwala, the Presidency said last night.
Ramaphosa in a statement on Friday night extended his heartfelt condolences to Gwala’s family, friends and colleagues in the media fraternity in South Africa and abroad.
“We have lost a youthful veteran in an important sector in our country. As a professional who qualified in the mid-1990s, Xolani Gwala carried with him the values of our transition to democracy – the values of listening and being open to views that conflict with or offend your own, and a focus on solutions.”
