Most of Johannesburg made their way out of bed this morning to participate in 702’s annual ‘Walk The Talk’ event which began bright an early at Marks Park in the suburb of Emmarentia.
But what many participants were happy to see was the station’s breakfast host, Xolani Gwala, out and about. Gwala has been battling cancer for months now after announcing his diagnosis on air, late last year.
Very few people have had access to Gwala save for a few updates from his colleagues, such as Redi Tlhabi, who kept us updated on his progress.
A few weeks ago, 702 station manager Thabisile Mbete stated “Xolani is in remission and is back at home recovering from his last operation. We are all looking forward to having him back on the station once he has recovered.”
And based on this picture of the radio host, we’re glad to see he’s doing well.
