Zulu lost his young life on the international Mandela Day of 18 July 2016 while on a humanitarian mission with a group of fellow South Africans including his wife Leshego. Zulu and the team were climbing Mount Kilimanjaro on the Trek for Mandela fundraiser to buy sanitary pads for poor South African girls.
The CEO of the Fund, Sibongile Mkhabela, remembered Zulu’s participation in the 2004 Altech Formula One two-seater race, which benefited the Fund: “We are still shocked by this sudden loss of a young and talented man, whose commitment to charity work benefited the children and youth of this country. We convey our heartfelt condolences to his family and friends. May his soul rest in peace.”
