Government Reacts To R50 Million Spent On Mampintsha’s Funeral

After an emotional funeral at the Durban International Convention Centre on Friday, the star was laid to rest. He died as a result of a stroke.

The premier’s office said it contributed R170,000 to the ceremony, while the sports, arts, and culture department contributed R50,000 and the eThekwini municipality contributed R100,000.

“We further wish to appeal to the public to be circumspect and not abuse the power of social media by spreading false information.

“Similarly, we urge the people of this province not to take everything that is published on social media platforms at face value, and only believe that which originates from credible and reputable media houses who are obliged to subject their news content to professional and ethical checks and balances,” said the officer of the premier.

The social media posts were slammed by Premier Nomusa Dube-Ncube. “It is very sad that somebody would start such malicious information spreading. There is no person in his sane mind that would have a funeral of that amount.

“We support artists at all times, whether it’s funerals or any other programme.

“We have invoices and documents to prove what was spent.”
