Grief has taught me so much about myself - Letshego Zulu
Letshego Zulu says she is a firm believer that life continues and while it is painful when someone dies, the clock keeps ticking. She adds that it is your choice to allow grief to either "freeze you or free you".
Her husband Gugu Zulu died in 2016 when the two set to conquer Mount Kilimanjaro along with the team of the Trek4Mandela initiative.
She has now released her book I Choose to Live: Life after Losing Gugu, a memoir reflecting on her love story with her husband as well as how she has made sense of her loss.
Zulu sat down with Azania Mosaka to shed more light on her journey.
