Johannesburg - A memorial service will be held on Thursday for late TV presenter and producer Akhumzi Jezile.

Speaking to The Juice Natasha Wadvalla, Marketing Director at Urban Brew Studios, said that the memorial service had been organised by various players in the entertainment industry with the permission of the family.

Details for Akhumzi's memorial and funeral service were also later confirmed through a press statement released on behalf of the family.

"We are humbled by the continued outpouring love, support and prayers we have received to date from all corners of those that were touched by his life. Even though we are still dealing with the shock of the loss of our son and brother; the family is comforted by the knowledge that Akhumzi loved the Lord and was unashamed of the gospel of Christ. We would like to thank everyone for the support, and further request that you continue to pray for us and afford us the space that we so desperately need in our time of grief," family spokesperson Percy Vilakazi said in the statement.

According to Natasha, a separate memorial will be held by Urban Brew Studios at a later stage where the lives of Akhumzi as well as Siyasanga Kobese and IT Technician Skhumbuzo Mbuthuma, who were also employed by Urban Brew, will be remembered.
