Thuli Madonsela pays tribute to late Patrick Shai


Thuli Madonsela has paid tribute to late late actor Patrick Shai.

Patrick’s death brought shock to many people and they have paid tribute to him.

It has been reported that the star took his own life and speculation on social media points towards online harassment.

Thuli said he will remember him for his work against gender-based violence (GBV).

Shai’s body was found by his wife in the garage of his Dobsonville home on Saturday morning and will be laid to rest this weekend.

In a statement, Madonsela said Shai’s death was a monumental loss.

“We had the privilege of working with Mr Shai and other celebrities in tracking GBV as well as mental health challenges in collaboration with the Place Awaken Celebrity Tournament. Mr Shai also did tremendous work with the Tears Foundation and the impact will live on,” said Madonsela

“He was so committed to doing better. Patrick Shai’s tragic passing is a monumental loss to the industry and our country. Heartfelt condolences to the family, friends and colleagues. May his soul rest in peace.”
