Johannesburg – South African race car driver Gugu Zulu's fellow climbers and Nelson Mandela Foundation CEO Sello Hatang are on Wednesday expected to host a media conference at the OR Tambo International Airport.  

Zulu died on Monday while climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania with his wife Letshego.  

He reportedly experienced breathing problems on Sunday and was rushed to hospital.

This year's Trek4Mandela expedition was intended to create awareness of the problems facing impoverished girls in rural areas during menstruation.

The expedition also hoped to raise money to buy sanitary towels for needy girls across the country to ensure they did not miss school.
