2008-05-05 00:00

The family of Mandla Ngcobo, the Ukhozi FM sport presenter who died on Thursday last week, released a statement this weekend in which they expressed their sadness and confirmed that he died at Nkosi Albert Luthuli Hospital due to complications after he underwent surgery.

“The surgery was performed to attend to injuries he sustained in a car accident in December when he was travelling from Port Shepstone to Durban.”

The family expressed their thanks to medical staff at both Grey’s and Nkosi Albert Luthuli Hospitals. “Although we were advised of the seriousness of his condition when he was admitted, we were hopeful he would make a full recovery. Our deepest gratitude also goes to co-workers and friends,” said the family.

Arrangements for his funeral, to be held in Pietermaritzburg, will soon be announced.
