to the cancer and the surgery was declared successful. So far the doctors
have not detected any cancerous cells outside of the ones that have been
identified and removed. I will be coming to work in the next week or so and
will begin chemotherapy once a month for 5 days and for the next 6 months. I

for me and the best wishes they extended to me and my family during this
difficult period".

their best wishes to him and his family and we want to make a special appeal
that Mr. Mvuzo and his family be afforded the privacy they deserve whilst he is recuparating."
