Rally driver Gugu Zulu dies on Kil­i­man­jaro

Daily Trust - - AROUND THE WORLD -

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.
