FORMER SANDF Surgeon General, Lieutenant General Vejay Ramlakan, has died, a family member confirmed the news to eNCA on Thursday night.
He was 62.
Ramlakan served as former president Nelson Mandela’s medical doctor for nearly a decade.
In 2017, he authored a book titled ‘Mandela’s Last Years’, which was later withdrawn after Mandela’s family complained that the book contained personal details.
Ramlakan was a former member of the ANC’s armed wing uMkhonto we Sizwe and a founding member of the United Democratic Front.
This is a developing story.
