Rally driver Gugu Zulu dies on Kilimanjaro
South African rally driver Gugu Zulu has died while attempting to climb Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. Mr Zulu, 38, was on a Nelson Mandela-linked charity trip to raise funds to buy sanitary towels for girls.
Mr Zulu and his wife Letshego both descended Mount Kilimanjaro when he experienced breathing problems on Sunday, according to local reports.
In his last Facebook post, the three-times national rally champion posted he had flulike symptoms. Mr Zulu won the hearts of many South Africans with his warm spirit as a motorsport television presenter and was wellloved even by those who did not follow racing, say the BBC’s Pumza Fihlani in Johannesburg.
