On the evening of Tuesday 30 March millions of South Africans were glued to their TV screens to watch for the last time, the woman who’s professionalism, and signature sign-off has gained her popularity all over the country. Even President Cyril Ramaphosa delayed his address to grant Mzansi a chance to watch Noxolo Grootboom read her final news bulletin
What a moment. What a stellar career. All the things a news anchor should be: Class. Professionalism. Trusted. A reassuring voice even in uncertain times. Thank you Mam’ #NoxoloGrootboom. You have set the bar high. Enjoy your retirement, you have earned it🙏🏽❤️ #NoxoloGrootboomDay pic.twitter.com/n0HSaoxEAD

WAIT FOR IT…
Today, Noxolo joins the long list of prank ideas we have stored for you in celebration of April’s Fool… she’s not joining BBC Africa, she’s retired folks!
Even if you had not watched her on the small screen for the past 37 years, even if you did not know her, the love that South Africa has showered her with is proof that she played a pivotal role in many people’s lives. She will be sorely remembered for her class, professionalism, and signature sign-off.
