Tributes pour in for sports reporter

Kekana, a former SABC sports analyst and veteran journalist, died after a long battle with diabetes. He was admitted at Milpark Hospital, Johannesbu­rg, last week.

Kekana leaves his mother, father, a sister and two daughters.

“It’s been a very difficult time for the family and we wish to thank the medical team that attended to him for their medical interventi­ons and support during David’s stay in hospital,” said family spokespers­on Andile Ncube.
