Rugby Commentator Kaunda Ntunja Death Dead – Kaunda Ntunja Obituary: Cause of Death
Rugby Commentator Kaunda Ntunja has passed away, this was confirmed through what we saw on social media today.
Such a massive loss to the transformation agenda in SA Rugby!!! Kaunda Ntunja made a huge contribution in having the discussion of transformation into the public space. His participation and contribution to Room Dividers with Robert Marawa on Metro FM gave South African rugby lovers a glimpse of what was happening in SA Rugby and sparked the necessary debate of inclusion of the historically excluded African child in SA Rugby. This is a major loss also for Phaka on SS1 which he anchored as the first rugby show ngesiXhosa and his commentary on Supersport 1 will be dearly missed. Kaunda Ntunja changed the game and broke barriers and for his contribution, I wish to deep in sorrow and grief with his wife,family , friends and the entire transformation society on the passing of this fine gent from eGcuwa. Phumla ngoxolo Dlamini umzamo wakho uwuzamile. I’m lost for words aphelele emlonyeni. 💔🥺
It is with deep sadness I confirm the passing of our beloved brother Kaunda Ntunja, earlier today in East London, Eastern Cape.
As you can imagine, we still trying to make sense of this tragic news and we ask for your love, care and discretion as we prepare to lay my big brother to rest.
We understand uDlamini of the famous SuperSport Rugby #XhosaCommentary duo of Zizi & Dabane has a massive, global following and we love you all for following and supporting my brother’s pioneering efforts, so we ask you to give us a moment to recoup as a family, before we update you all with further information.
Please consider this Facebook platform as the official family platform to get your information on the preparations for Kaunda. Please refrain from spreading unnecessary information without confirming with the family. I know we are a caring and ethical group of human beings that take care not to spread unnecessary harm to others.
All media and other related queries are to be referred to me, Tando Ntunja, and no one else.
Thank you all in advance for your love and your prayers, God bless you all, Tando
