Johannesburg - There has been further heartbreak in the home of famous actor, Roland Mqwebu.

Only a week after the family buried the veteran actor, they have now also lost Ronald's son to a heart attack.

According to Daily Sun, Roland's son, Manqoba, suffered a heart attack and passed away at the Thebe Hospital in Harrismith, KZN on Sunday.

“Just a week after burying my father, it’s my brother. I can’t take this pain," his younger sister Andile told the paper. “I’m on sleeping tablets as we speak. This is too painful."

She says Manqoba "was very close" to their father. She says Roland's death had "really upset" Manqoba and he was not able to compose himself at his father's funeral.

She reveals that Manqoba was travelling to his home in Johannesburg when he suffered a heart attack and had to be taken to hospital.

“My brother stopped his car at a garage and called an ambulance, but he died on arrival at the hospital.”
