President Cyril Ramaphosa has instructed that the national flag fly at half-mast in the Province on the day of the funeral as a mark of respect.

The spokesperson for the Office of the Premier, Bronwyn Thomas-Abrahams, stated that due to the coronavirus lockdown regulations, the maximum number of mourners at the funeral would be limited to 50 people.

“A special provincial official funeral category 2 is reserved for distinguished persons specifically designated by the president of South Africa on request by the premier of a Province,” explained Thomas-Abrahams.

She said that Premier Zamani Saul had set up a provincial task team with representatives from the Mutwa families and different government departments to arrange and prepare the funeral.

“The premier, provincial government representatives and the family will pay their final respects to an activist who strived to foster social cohesion, cultural diversity and the spirit of Ubuntu in our country’s diverse society.”

Saul added that Mutwa played an indelible role in both the liberation and development of the country.

“For this we owe him an immeasurable debt of gratitude. His legacy is engraved in the minds of our people through the enormous contribution he made towards society and the African culture,” said Saul.
