At the time of the message, Nonhle was going through a particularly tough time in her life.
Nonhle posted a screengrab of the touching Facebook message she received in 2008 on Instagram. “Gugu Zulu was an incredible guy..I found this Facebook post he once sent me in March 2008 gosh my heart is so sad.. May He Rest In Perfect Peace,” she wrote.
In the message Gugu writes that even though they haven’t met before, he is sorry to hear about her “pain, worry and helplessness. My prayers are with you and your mum for all will work out," he ended off the message.
