Johannesburg - A special provincial official funeral will be held for late anti-apartheid activist and liberation theologian Reverend Professor Bonganjalo Claude Goba, the Presidency said on Wednesday.

President Jacob Zuma has instructed the national flag to be flown at half-mast in KwaZulu-Natal on the day of the funeral.

Goba served in the higher education sector as lecturer, professor, dean and vice chancellor. 

He was the first vice chancellor to preside over the merger of tertiary institutions in the late 1990s.

Goba brought together ML Sultan Technikon and Natal Technikon to form the Durban University of Technology.

The details of the funeral would be communicated by the KwaZulu-Natal government.
