Johannesburg – Chatting to Stephen Grootes on 702 on Friday, presenter Xolani Gwala confirmed that he has been diagnosed with colon cancer. 

“After thorough investigations they found that I have colon cancer which was advanced. Quite advanced,” he said. 

The presenter mentioned that he has undergone one operation so far to remove the tumour. “Obviously there’s still quite a lot that still needs to happen. As early as next week I’m starting chemo therapy. And then there may be another operation later on,” he added. 

Admitting that the diagnosis was sudden and unexpected, Xolani says he is gearing up for a fight: “It’s going to be a very difficult fight, and a long a fight. But a fight that I am ready for.”
