Cape Town - Public Service and Administration Minister Collins Chabane will get a special official funeral, Minister in the Presidency Jeff Radebe said on Sunday.

"Minister Chabane, as a dedicated and serving member of the Cabinet, will be accorded a special official funeral, details of which will be recorded at a later stage," he said at a media briefing.

Radebe said President Jacob Zuma was "deeply shocked" by his untimely death and viewed it as a huge loss to the government and to the country. He described Chabane, 54, as an "intellectual giant" and a man who was "not in the clouds, but grounded among his people".
