He was still with the public broadcaster at the time of his death.
A lot of Mzansi people on social media are sending tributes for the fallen Kekana, and condolences to his family.
#RIPDavidKekana It is always soo heartbreaking to hear of a fellow journo passing away, because we tend to forget that we're also human. What a gentleman David was, I've had the honour of working with him, very professional and dedicated.

We meet at different times, and we live our lives with laughter and all sorts of emotions- good and bad, sometimes people forget about u and the good deeds u shared, and lastly we leave, going back home unexpectedly, sending a shock wave across thos who knw us.
