NATIONAL NEWS - The family of the late Joe Mafela says while he was a legend in the entertainment industry, they never felt like they were sharing him with the nation.

Mafela was killed in a road collision in Saturday night.

He was 75.

Mafela started his professional career in theatre in 1964 but is well known for playing the role of Sdumo on SABC 1’s Sgudi ‘Snaysi.

Mafela has been in the South African entertainment industry for over 50 years and was popularly known for his acting and comedy.

His niece Milicent Mulalu says while Mafela took his craft very seriously, he always made time for family.

“If there’s anything that anybody can take or learn from him is that whatever you do, you do with dedication. He was a public person even with that, he gave a lot of time to family.”
