    Tributes pour in for Gugu Zulu.

    Yes, death is part of the human journey that none of us are spared, but it is also a shameless thief that steals our beloved ones… leaving us in pain and grief.

    Speaking of death, South Africa mourns the tremendous loss of a well-established racing driver for Volkswagen, Gugu Zulu as tragic paid him a visit during a charity course on Mount Kilimanjaro.

    Causing a stir on social media, fans expressed their shock and deepest condolences to the family immediately after news of the racing star’s death surfaced.

    It is learned that Zulu’s aim was to reach zenith on Mount Kilimanjaro all in the name of charity for Mandela Day on Monday. In collaboration withTrek4Mandela, Zulu wanted to raise funds that would ensure that 350 000 girls do not miss a day of school due to menstrual challenges.

    News of Zulu’s tragic death was confirmed by the Nelson Mandela Foundation when issuing a statement to the media, revealing that Zulu had experienced breathing problems.

    "What we do know is that Gugu experienced problems breathing. The medical team supporting the trek put him on a drip and they descended the mountain with him," said the foundation.

    Gugu and his wife, Letshego Zulu were two of 46 South Africans who were attempting to summit the mountain, hoping to reach the highest peak in Africa on Mandela Day.

    We at EntertainmentSA send our deepest condolences to his family, his friends and loved ones… South Africa has indeed suffered a great loss… Rest in Peace Gugu Zulu.
