Vuyo Mbuli leaves legacy: Mokhobo

By Sapa | May 20, 2013 | COMMENTS [ 7 ]

SABC radio and television presenter Vuyo Mbuli has left a legacy for the country's youth, the public broadcaster's CEO Lulama Mokhobo said.

"He leaves a tremendous legacy and I think for the young people that have watched him and followed him..., this is a time for them to say 'I potentially could be the next Vuyo'..., somebody who is completely fearless," Mokhobo said in a Morning Live interview with Leanne Manas.

"He was somebody who was so dedicated and professional. It didn't matter what it was, if Vuyo had to do it, he did it with absolutely the best of his ability," Mokhobo said.

Manas broke down and cried on camera at the start of the programme on Monday.

The SABC reported that Mbuli, 46, collapsed while watching a rugby match between the Cheetahs and the Reds at the Free State Stadium on Saturday night.

He was treated at the scene before being taken to the Bloemfontein Mediclinic, where he later died.

Mokhobo said a memorial service would be held at the SABC on Wednesday, and that the Mbuli family had informed the broadcaster that his funeral would be held on Friday.

Details of the two events would be released later in the week.

Your multi talent will be missed, I remember when Mr Davies launched the New Company Registrar website at Galaga Estate, when they launched Cipro wensite, you were the Master of the occation, you interpretended Comapnies laws, like a true lawyer, like someone working for the Registrar of Companies, you were given talent like no body else, I hope your genes are in your Boy and daughter, I hope they have learnt something from you, If I knew how to ask the Lord up there to raise you back to life for the sake of All South Africans, I would do so.
I have never seen someone so talented like you, so many business meetings you drove the Agenda like you worked for those companies, yes you prepared your work very well, something mant of us can not do, I have learnt to say Helo with a smile even things were bad, you taught me that, I have learnt to hide troubles of my heart infront of everyone, even though deep down i know is bad, got it from you, I have learnt to respect my peers, even those who behind my back said horrible things, got it from you, the last thing I can say is to say " The MTN sogn of the year By Sfiso says in sestho " Go lukile Ntate" Go well my Hero

To all those who were not touched by Vuyo's life it is OK, vele in this life one cannot expect to be liked / loved by everybody. They can say whatever they like (negatives) about him, but believe me you, you are nothing like him and you can never take that charisma away from Him even from his grave, To the Mbuli family we are with you in our thoughts, we all lost a Hero here anilahlekelwe nodwa , I started watching Morning Live from Tracy & Vuyo's days and never Morning Live Team my condolences to you guys. Rest in peace my brother, RIP my Hero.
