Alexandra community radio station, Alex FM, was ransacked on Tuesday morning and equipment estimated to be worth R5-million looted.

I just wanted to reach out and see if we could help. First of all, we can leverage our technical and engineering skills to try and help them re-establish their studios and we are busy looking at what equipment we can donate to them.

In a more tangible form, I want to donate R50,000 to Alex FM to help them get back up again.
