Today marks Zane Ibrahim’s 73rd birthday – we have been receiving many tributes to him via our Facebook group and from emails sent to the station from around the world since we announced his passing – including from Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and local tabloid Die Son.

Bush Radio would also like to thank Voice of the Cape and Radio 786 for helping to spread the word of Zane’s passing.

Many people have been asking about a memorial for Zane and we are consulting with his family as to how to best celebrate Zane’s life and will post details once these have been finalised.

We thought we’d share a few of the messages that have come to us and the tributes paid to Zane via other media. Click on the pictures to view the original post.

Zane Ibrahim, Bush Radio’s former Managing Director from 1996 to 2010 and the man who led the station through some stormy and great times, has died.

We have no words at this time to describe the pain of our loss and the vacuum his passing leaves.

Our thoughts are with his family and friends.

You are welcome to share your thoughts, memories and tributes here.
