Dr Skweyiya to be laid to rest

The late Dr Zola Skweyiya will be laid to his final resting place on Saturday at the Pretoria East Cemetery.

President Cyril Ramaphosa has accorded Dr Skweyiya a Special Official Funeral Category 1 which includes military honours.

Since the President issued the declaration, South African flags across the country and abroad have been flying in a half-mast position as a sign that the country is in a mourning state.

The funeral service will be held at the Christian Revival Church (CRC), situated at the corner of Lynnwood and Solomon Mahlangu Roads in Pretoria.

The official programme will start at 8:30am. All who wish to bid farewell to Dr Skweyiya are welcome to attend.

The IMC has thanked all those who attended the memorial service at the Tshwane Events Centre on Wednesday as well as those who took time to send messages of condolence to the Skweyiya and Mazibuko families.
