Radio 702 talk show host Xolani Gwala has revealed he has colon cancer.

Updating listeners on Friday, Gwala said his cancer was at an advanced stage.

“I’m living with something big. I found out that I have colon cancer‚ which was advanced‚” Gwala told fellow 702 presenter Stephen Grootes.

He said he had undergone his first operation and would start chemotherapy next week.

“It’s going to be a long fight‚ but a fight that I’m ready for.”

Gwala said he found out about the cancer after suffering from a fever.

“This was so sudden. In April‚ I was running the London Marathon. Suddenly you have a fever‚ you go to the doctor and you are told you have cancer.”

His oncologist Dr Omondi Ogudi said Gwala’s cancer had spread to the liver.

Gwala has been off air since he found out about the cancer.

He initially told his listeners that doctors were investigating what was wrong with him.

    Mr. Gwala. I am a listener of your program and have very high regards for you. I am a medical doctor myself and had to take care of my husband .he was diagnosed With advanced colon Cancer.. 5 years ago and also very much of shock to all of us . I was doing his complete check ups on yearly basis and He never showed yo have any problem
    )He has been always a healthy man .
    My husband got the best treatment and did very well. We learnt a lot during this ordeal. The most important thing is to have a positive attitude towards the whole process and fight it with all your heart and win the battle.. nowadays with the type of chemotherapy that we have got and the competent physicians, cancer can be eradicated . positive and fight
    . Omondi is a wonderful doctor and a very good friend of mine
    .you are in good hands.
    Be confident and rely upon the Almighty God . All will be fine.
