Tributes continue to flow in throughout the weekend after the family of Dr. Sindi van Zyl said she had died two months after being diagnosed with Covid-19.
The former Kaya 959 presenter died in a Johannesburg hospital a week after her 45th birthday.
Many people took to Twitter to pay tribute to Dr. Sindi after Kaya 959 confirmed the presenter’s death. Some people have never personally met her but shared all the great things she did for them.
Dr. Lerato Masemola speaking on the breakfast team shares her memories with her friend, doctor, and colleague; she shared how reading the outpouring of love on social media gave her comfort.
‘I never thought I would speak about my friend in the past tense; she had shown us that we all could do what we love in 24hours,’ said Dr. Lerato Masemola.
At the Glamour Awards, she shared how she became the doctor because her medical team then were ready to give up on her, and she became a doctor who did not allow her patients to die on her watch.

Sindi used to drive from Linksfield, 2-3x a month, to come shop for groceries at the woolies at my practice in Boskruin when I went back to work after my accident last year.. just so she can “check up on me..”
She’d dismiss this show of love as “just another route to Kayafm”??

A dress with pockets ,makes life easy when taking pictures. Pictures were important to Sindi.
This is the only dress we made for Sindi that had a matching doek. Her first time wearing a doek and she was super happy in a doek look. M Happiness #ADressForSindi pic.twitter.com/JuLmI9QSdN
