We lose yet another Emzini Wezinsizwa actor.
Between 2015 and 2016 we've seen a number of Emzini Wezinsizwa actors pass on, sadly 2017 has taken yet another actor who used to act in the comedy series.
On Tuesday morning, Washington Sixolo's family confirmed the passing of the actor during an interview on SABC's Morning Live.
His son, Zolani Sixolo mentioned that the family is building their strength at this very trying moment.
"We're trying to be strong, we're getting there. Death is not an easy thing it doesn't matter how sick a person can be but through God's grace, we're really trying to get there. Time is a great healer and we will be healed."
Zolani also explained that his father was sick for quite a long time and had been bedridden. Shortly after being bedridden his father's health then deteriorated last month. Zolani then confirmed that Washington's illness became worst on Saturday and unfortunately the late actor then succumbed to his illness on Sunday morning at 11:00 am.
Mr Sixolo will be buried on Sunday, 11 June, at the Seventh Day Adventist Church in Orlando East, Soweto.
Rest in peace Washington Sixolo.
