Simba’s Memorial Service

simbaSABC 3 and Top Billing mourn the tragic loss of presenter Simba Mhere.The news of his untimely passing has been received with immense shock and distress by his friends, fans and colleagues and our hearts go out to his bereaved family.

Simba was an exceptional person and a hugely, talented presenter. He had a disarming ability to win over a star or strangers he had never met, as if they were a personal friend. His warm heart, generous spirit, and wonderful sense of humour, has touched the lives of so many. He was an asset to Top Billing, and we feel privileged to have shared in his journey.

Top Billing will be airing a tribute to Simba, and celebration of his life and his achievements, this Thursday 5 February 2015 at 8.30pm.

Further to this, there will be a memorial service and funeral held this week, which will be open to the public.

Many thanks to the many friends, viewers and associates who have expressed their condolences.

If anybody would like to share condolences, the family have requested that rather than flowers, donations be made to a charity close to Simba and the family’s heart for humanitarian organisation JAM (Joint Aid Management) that is currently feeding more than 1million children on our continent every day.
