Messages of condolences continue to pour in from different sports personalities and government for the veteran SABC TV and Radio sports commentator Cebo Manyaapelo who died on Wednesday.

The 50-year-old Manyaapelo had a service spanning of over 33 years.

He shot to fame as an anchor for the Motsweding FM breakfast show.

North West Premier Supra Mahumapelo says the North West Province has not only lost a good broadcaster, but an entertainer and a motivator whom many emulated and looked up to.

Premier Soccer League (PSL) Chairperson Ivirn Khoza has described Manyaapelo’s passing as a devastating loss.

“Personally I know him as a Pirates supporter. He supported Liverpool in England. He prepared well and did his research, and that’s one of the things that stood out about him. He was passionate about sports and that is why it is a great loss for us. We have lost a giant. We want to express our condolences to the family…he was one of us.”
