It is with profound sadness that the family of Jonas Mosa Gwangwa announce his passing. Seventeen days after we lost our Mother, our Father left this earth to join his lifetime sweetheart and soul mate, this morning at the age of 83.
A loving and devoted husband, father, grandfather, friend and mentor, our hearts beat with profound loss. Dr Gwangwa's international and activist contribution to and participation in the areas of music, theatre, and the arts in general is contained in the memory and minds of millions across the world and we are blessed and grateful to have been part of a life and legacy of love and avant-garde creativity that spans the space of over seven decades.
As we mourn our beloved parents, we are grateful for the outpouring of love, and we ask that the respectful manner in which we were able to bury our Mother be continued.
We will, in due course, release details of memorial and burial services.
