They are still refusing to do burials at Phutanang Cemetery.

"We will not go to Phutanang Cemetery until everything is up and running andthe shacks have been removed."
LOCAL funeral undertakers are looking into obtaining their own grounds for a cemetery in order to conduct burials, while they are still refusing to do burials at Phutanang Cemetery.

The Sol Plaatje Municipality has instructed that all burials as from August 26 may only take place at Phutanang Cemetery as all the city’s other cemeteries are overpopulated.

The chairperson of the Northern Cape Funeral Practitioners Association, Anthony Malan, said that they had resumed burials at all other cemeteries in the city, except Phutanang Cemetery.
