Gazambane Thami Celani Majola

In a heart-wrenching turn of events, Thami Celani Majola, affectionately known as Gazambane among his friends, a dedicated truck driver at Aspen Logistics, has tragically passed away exactly one week before his scheduled wedding on September 10, 2023.

The news of his untimely demise comes as a shock to all who knew him.

According to a close relative who shared the devastating news with SA Trucker, Gazambane fell ill at his home in Empangeni on Sunday, September 3, and was immediately rushed to the hospital for medical attention.

However, despite the best efforts of medical professionals, he succumbed to his illness mere hours after being admitted.

The precise cause of his sudden and unexpected passing has yet to be determined, leaving family and friends searching for answers and grieving their loss.

As the mournful community grapples with the devastating news, plans for Thami’s funeral are already underway.

Tragic timing

It is likely that his funeral will be held on Saturday, September 10, the very day he was originally slated to exchange vows with his beloved Thenjiwe.

This heartbreaking turn of events serves as a stark reminder of the fragility of life and the unpredictable nature of fate.
