She died due to short illness.
“Ms Moloi worked relentlessly to break down barriers and eradicate myths surrounding Persons with Disabilities. Her mainstream recognition came after being awarded the Shoprite Checkers Woman of the Year accolade in 2005.
This was not only a milestone for Moloi, but also served as inspiration to the entire South African Disabled community,” read the statement.
“Her endeavors, fought to prove that persons with disabilities could achieve anything they put their minds to, given the opportunity and necessary access, proved that Ms Moloi put others before herself.
The passing of Julia leaves a void in the continuous fight for persons with disabilities in South Africa including Sports, Recreation, Arts and Culture,” continued the press release.
She was a sincere, humble and compassionate businesswoman, journalist philanthropist and mother and will be surely missed. She leaves behind her mother Shirley Moloi and son Lethabo 4 years old.

A Memorial service in her honour is to be held at Bassline-Nutown Thursday 21 February 12 mid-day.
“DISABILITY DOESN’T MEAN INABILITY AS I AM GOD’s BEST MASTERPIECE…
CELEBRATE YOUR BEST IN LIFE…” the late Julia Moloi.
REST IN PEACE!
