Funeral plans for slain Mozambican underway
The family of the slain Emmanuel Sithole has met with both the South African and Mozambican governments to make funeral plans.
According to Eye Witness News, Sithole’s cousin Thando says former President Nelson Mandela’s widow Graca Machel is also involved with financial arrangements to ensure Sithole’s three young children are looked after.
She also said the government would be arranging a memorial service that will take place on Wednesday, but it's unclear whether it would be in Alexandra.
Also, a funeral service will be held in Mozambique next week Saturday after the South African government repatriates Sithole’s body.
Meanwhile, yesterday, 4 men accused of Sithole appeared before a court but the case was postponed to next month.
