It has been nine years since Vuyo Mbuli died in a tragic accident. Leanne Manas, who worked alongside Vuyo Mbuli on the morning show 'Morning Live', still finds it difficult to envision her life without him.

Manas frequently uses social media to memorialise and honour the late Mbuli. This time was no exception, as Manas recently earned a major victory when she bagged the French National Order of Merit Award for her contribution to South African journalism.

Manas wrote: "You would’ve been very proud my friend. Nine years today and I still miss you so much."
