The SABC 24 hour news channel will be broadcasting Ruth Mompati's funeral and funeral arrangements throughout the African continent.

The SABC 24 hour news channel, 404 on DSTV, will be broadcasting Ruth Mompati's funeral and funeral arrangements throughout the African continent.

The arrangements are being finalised today, for tomorrow.

"It is by implication for Africa Day, the SABC is launching the 24 hour new channel in 50 African countries, and it make sense to broadcast mme Ruth Mompati's funeral, because she has been to most of these countries and it would be relevant to broadcast there", Kaizer Kganyogo told DRUM.

The special funeral will be held in Vryburg and National flag will be fly at half mast this Saturday.

The 89-year-old politician died following a lengthy illness. She had a huge legacy within the political sphere having worked beside the late former president Nelson Mandela and Oliver Tambo in their law practice between 1953 and 1961.
