"It is with great sadness that we as the Thuswa family convey the news of the passing of our dear brother, Thulani Thuswa.

Thulani met his untimely passing this morning, Sunday 6th June 2021.
We are deeply shocked and saddened as a family. He was a true light in this world, a kind person Thulani was always ready to share that unforgettable smile of his with those he met.

We know that many people were touched by the kind of person Thulai was and have expressed their hurt and shock. We respectfully ask for time as a family to privately mourn our beloved Thulani.

Further communications will be provided by MT Sports Marketing and Management in due course."

Boity and other celebs have taken to social media to remember Thulani. They've all been deeply affected by his death.

"Rest in eternal peace to one of the kindest, most beautiful human beings I’ve had the privilege of knowing. You’ve left us too soon."

Thulani was dedicated to helping football players manage their money better and make better life decisions. Chatting to Minnie Dlamini on Homeground, Thulani and footballer Hlompho Kekana chatted about their business venture.

"We’ve seen a lot of situations where players are struggling financially after they retire. We’ve seen the similar incidences of alcohol abuse and unfortunate deaths. I thought know what? Let’s do something. Let’s not complain so much and be in the stands complaining." Said Thulani. He was also equally dedicated to help combat gender-based violence and xenophobia.

"Let’s do something about it. Our first project was to combat gender-based violence and xenophobia. We had Hlompho with coach Pitso and other coaches. We even had support all the way from Zambia. It was at the height of this criminality that happened at that time and we saw there’s a gap. We can let football speak. We are football, we speak." He further added.

"We have a responsibility to the masses that support football. So our second one was also from the heart. We are combating alcohol abuse amongst footballers and we know when it happens. It happens when people are relaxed, it happens when people have Fifa breaks and when people are sleeping. You must check all the accidents. It’s always the stars – the talented and the highly gifted."
