Veteran News Reader Linda Gqomfa died few days ago after a brief illness.
Veteran Newsreader Linda Gqomfa is dead. Linda Gqomfa was reported to have passed away on Saturday, September 19 2020 after a short illness.
Linda Gqomfa worked for both SABC TV and Radio as a Xhosa news bulletin reader, as well as a communication officer for the South African Police Service.
In 2003, she won the Government Communicators’ awards.
Linda has been with the South African Police Service a long time. After only two months with the Service, she negotiated a free slot for the whole year from the SABC’s Umhlobo Wenene National Radio, which covers seven provinces. This gave Linda a whole year to communicate with little children throughout the country on crime awareness.
She also visited parents in the East Rand Squatter Camps where crime, especially child abuse, is rife, to ask for permission to use their children on the radio to spread the message on crime awareness to the whole country.
She initiated dramas and studio discussions about burning issues regarding crime. Next year, Linda will also be doing the programme for three more radio stations in Northern Sotho, Venda and Tswana.
Linda Gqomfa no Noxolo Grootbom… Same what’sup group. Babede babengathi bayantyiloza xa befunda iindaba zesiXhosa.❤️❤️
