Despite dealing with the painful loss of her father and brother at a young age‚ TV and radio personality Thando Thabethe has learnt some valuable life lessons from the ordeals.

Taking a trip down memory lane Thando speaks out about living life to the fullest in memory of her loved ones.


The actress‚ who doesn’t often open up regarding the tragedies she’s faced in her life‚ has for the first time given fans a glimpse into the motto that she has since adopted. The 5FM DJ’s brother passed away in August last year and although Thando did not reveal the details around his death‚ her pain was evident in messages posted to social media.

“So beautiful this life thing‚ it’s made me grow up faster than I wish I could tell the world‚ and that story will be told‚ but God is in control and all is well.”

Thando went on to add that after losing her dad and brother she has chosen to live for them and the rest of her family.

“When u have lost the greatest dad one could wish for and the most uplifting and encouraging brother one could wish for …nothing matters other than to live for those that remain and those that have left you.”
