The Durban University of Technology was sad to learn about the passing of one of its talented graduates, Charles Zulu, who died during the recent storms that ravaged KwaZulu-Natal.

Mr Zulu was a former Drama Studies student at DUT. Professor Brian Pearce, Deputy Dean in the University’s Faculty of Arts and Design, said “Charles was a talented actor with a natural warmth and sincerity. He was also someone with a wonderful sense of humour. Charles will be greatly missed.” 

DUT wishes to extend its deepest condolences to Mr Zulu’s family, friends, fans and colleagues. May he rest in peace.
