DA Run Province No state funeral for Lundi Unlike Sfiso Ncwane and Thandi Klaasen his fellow musicians

Unlike fellow musicians Sfiso Ncwane and Thandi Klaasen, Lundi may not receive a state funeral.

Lundi Tyamara’s family has reportedly not been approached by any government official about a state funeral state for the late gospel legend.
Minister of Arts and Culture Nathi Mthethwa has visited the family and asked their spokesperson and Lundi’s manager, Anele Hlazo, about any shortages for funeral arrangements, but without any mention of a state funeral.
As it stands, Lundi will not be getting a state funeral, unlike fellow musicians Sfiso Ncwane and Thandi Klaasen, who recently passed on.
Spokesperson for the Western Cape MEC for cultural affairs and sport Stacy McLean told The Sowetan that Lundi’s family had not applied for a state funeral, but the municipality was assisting the family with arrangements.
Hlazo told the publication the family was not even aware they had to apply for a state funeral.
The 38-year-old gospel legend died in the early hours of Friday morning after a long battle with TB and liver complications. His memorial service was held on Wednesday at Grace Bible Church in Soweto.
His funeral service will be held at Zwelethemba Community Hall in Worcester, Western Cape, on Sunday morning.
