"Pan Africanist Congress of Azania (PAC) is sending its deepest and sincere condolences to the family of Mixon 'Tsekeleke' Tholo. He was a great entertainer and the epitome of a talented artist.

Tholo had a very big body but it was not heavy for him as we remember him dancing for our people, entertaining the South Africans and those in the neighbouring countries. He will be dearly missed by all of us as he has also contributed immensely in our own music genre which is Kwaito.

Tsekeleke was fighting very dangerous animal called diabetes, it is clear that this disease has become a serious problem for majority of our people and it is responsible for much loss of life in our communities. We seriously and urgently need to do something about it.

Hamba Kahle Son of the Soil."
