To commemorate Gugu Zulu’s legacy and those who have lost their lives summiting Mount Kilimanjaro, his wife Letshego Zulu has pleaded for a mini medical facility to be erected on the mountain to lessen the deaths caused by altitude illnesses. 
During Gugu Zulu’s funeral service held at Rhema Bible Church in Randburg, his wife, Letshego Zulu raised her concerns about the number of people who have either suffered or died from altitude illnesses whilst summiting Mount Kilimanjaro.
“I plea to everyone to help us continue Gugu’s legacy. Let’s come together and erect a mini medical facility at horombo, because that’s the one place I saw his biggest smile… nothing big just a small facility. So many people suffer from altitude illness. I make a plea for all those in power to hold hands with me and do what he would’ve wanted to do, to prevent more deaths or anymore suffering.” Said Letshego
Letshego’s plea was met with applause from mourners attending the funeral service.
Letshego also mentioned that she will be returning to Mount Kilimanjaro next year on Mandela Day to commemorate her husband’s memory and to fly the adventure couple flag high.
Letshego has also made it her life-long duty to continue Gugu’s work of helping those in need. The widow continued to mention that she was married to an amazing man who showed love to many people.
“I find that it’s my duty to continue his work, he loved so many people, and I was never jealous of his love because I knew that I was his first lady.”
Gugu Zulu will be laid to rest at Westpark Cemetery in Randburg.
