Vuyo, we will miss you
It was with great sadness that we learned about the sudden passing away of Vuyo Mbuli.
With every election he was a familiar figure at the Result Operations Centre in Pretoria.
The Commission and its staff offer our sincere condolences to everyone at the SABC, and in particular his family, on their loss. May you all find strength in this difficult time.
