Zuma declares official funeral for Motsoaledi

President Jacob Zuma has declared a special provincial official funeral for Caroline Motsoaledi, the wife of Rivonia treason trialist Elias Motsoaledi.

“The president has directed that the national flag should be flown at half-mast at all stations in the Gauteng province on the day of her funeral, January 3,” said the presidency today.

Minister in the Presidency Susan Shabangu would deliver the eulogy at the funeral.

Motsoaledi, a veteran of the struggle for liberation who the presidency said remained steadfast in her convictions and commitment to a free South Africa, died in hospital today.

The Gauteng provincial government was expected to provide the details of the funeral service.
