The memorial service for South African rally champion Gugu Zulu is expected to take place at the Kyalami racetrack on Tuesday.

Zulu died while climbing Mount Kilimanjaro with his wife Letshego and a group of South Africans last Sunday. He was part of the Trek4Mandela expedition led by experienced mountaineer, Sibusiso Vilane.

He complained of “flu-like symptoms” while ascending the mountain. They had hoped to reach the summit on Mandela Day, July 18.

The expedition was intended to raise money to buy sanitary towels for needy girls across the country, to ensure they did not miss school during their periods.
