The funeral of former Cabinet minister Sicelo Shiceka will take place in Midrand on May 12, a family representative said on Wednesday.

Shiceka died at the age of 45 in the Eastern Cape on Monday morning. He had been on sick leave since February 2011.

"The family of the late Sicelo Shiceka met today in Johannesburg to discuss funeral arrangements. The meeting decided that the funeral will take place on the 12th May 2012 in Midrand, Johannesburg," family spokesman Justice Zotwa said in a statement on Wednesday.

Further details would be communicated in due course.

"We have been humbled by the overwhelming support and condolences we received from the public and political parties and this has become our source of strength and courage," Zotwa said.

Shiceka was appointed co-operative governance and traditional affairs minister in Zuma's Cabinet on May 11, 2009.
