This comes hot on the heels of news that Gwala was in remission after being diagnosed with colon cancer last year.
“We want to take a moment first to thank each and every one of you for your love, prayers, healing light, support, comments, stories, goodies, emails… the list seems endless. We were completely overwhelmed the past 10 months by the sheer magnitude of love, caring, prayers and thoughtfulness that YOU have shown us,” Gwala’s wife, former Miss South Africa Peggy-Sue Khumalo, said.
The station’s manager, Thabisile Mbete, said at the time that they were looking forward to having him back on the air once he had recovered.
