FAMILY, friends and colleagues paid their last respects to attorney and SAPS colonel, Shaun Govender, on Tuesday at the Christ the King Church.

Govender died from liver failure due to a rare reaction to his TB medication.

He served as an SAPS officer for many years and was well known by the South Coast community.

He was a member of Parish Church and will be remembered for his hard work and dedication.

His family last week appealed for a donor that would save his life while he was being treated at the Wits Donald Gordan Medical Centre in Johannesburg.

Govender’s brother-in-law, Shaun Pillay, said he will miss his “brother”.

“He was a friend and a brother to me, we shared the same interests in sport even though we supported opposite sides.

“We will always remember him,” said Pillay.
