Rajbansi funeral to be held at stadium

2011-12-30 11:12
Durban - The funeral service for the leader of Minority Front, Amichand Rajbansi will be held in Durban on Saturday, a family spokesperson said on Friday.

"The funeral service will be held in Durban, the Chatsworth stadium in Chatsworth on Saturday, from 11:30am to 16:00," Patrick Pillay said.

His body would then be taken to the Clare Estate crematorium where he would be cremated at 17:00.

Rajbansi died aged 69 on Thursday morning, after being admitted to hospital in Umhlanga, outside Durban, in October with bronchitis.

Senior ANC members and members of the KwaZulu-Natal legislature were expected to visit the Rajbansi family on Friday.

The ANC and Minority Front had a co-operation agreement which led to Rajbansi serving in the ANC-led KwaZulu-Natal cabinet from 2004 to 2009, as sports and recreation MEC.
