It is with great sadness to report to you that Ellen Tshabalala is no more. May her soul rest in peace.
Ellen Tshabalala who was also known as Zandile Tshabalala is a former Chairperson of the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC). She was appointed Chairperson of the Board in September 2013, having previously served for six months prior as acting SABC Chairperson. She resigned on Wednesday, 17 December 2014.
The deceased had sparked controversy when it was found that she had not achieved the BCom qualification that she used when applying for the SABC job.
Former SABC board chairperson Ellen Tshabalala has died due to complication that involved Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) and covid-19 which led to kidney failure. She passed away in the early hours of Saturday morning. She also suffered from iron deficiency.
Kidney failure is dangerous. Sometimes kidneys are no longer able to filter and clean blood. This can cause unsafe levels of waste products to build up. This is known as kidney (or renal) failure. Unless it is treated, this can cause death.
Kidney disease, also known as chronic kidney disease or CKD, causes more deaths than breast cancer or prostate cancer. Chronic kidney disease (CKD) means your kidneys are damaged and losing their ability to keep you healthy by filtering your blood. In the early stages of the disease, most people do not have symptoms.
But as kidney disease gets worse, wastes can build up in your blood and make you feel sick. You may develop other problems, like high blood pressure, anemia, weak bones, poor nutritional health, and nerve damage. Because kidneys are vital to so many of the body's functions, kidney disease also increases your risk of having heart and blood vessel disease.
If you do feel any discomfort, pain medication may be prescribed for you. Without treatment for kidney failure, toxins, and fluid will build up in your body, making you feel increasingly tired, nauseous and itchy.
RIP Ellen Tshabalala
