Former boxing champion Dingaan Thobela will appear in the Commercial Crime Court in Johannesburg on Tuesday for allegedly failing to register his funeral company.

“The Rose of Soweto”, as the former world champion was known during his fighting days, was arrested two weeks ago after it was alleged that he had failed to register the financial wing of his funeral business, The Rose Funerals.

He is being charged for contravention of the Financial Advisory and Intermediary Services Act 37 of 2002 by failing to register his funeral company as a financial service adviser as required by law.
