Flags are flying at half mast in the media world today as radio personality and veteran Ebrahim Gangat lost his battle to cancer and passed away last night at his home in Roshnee, Vereeniging in the South of Gauteng.
The long time radio presenter and social activist had been critically ill for the past few weeks.
The radio icon breathed his last close to midnight on the 7th night of the holy month of Ramadaan.
Marhoom Gangat served as prime time presenter at Radio Islam International before moving to Channel Islam International where he became a household name for more than 15 years.
He later followed his young colleagues who opened Salaam Media and was the senior member who guided them with compassion and wisdom which he acquired in over 20 years of radio broadcasting.
Marhoom Ebrahim’s departure from this world has left a hole in the radio industry and 1000s of listeners devastated.
We make Dua that Allah grant him the highest stages of Jannah as he became a flag bearer of deen in the morning radio show on various radio stations.
