State funeral for Vuyo Mbuli

By Patience Bambalele | May 22, 2013 | COMMENTS [ 230 ]

RENOWNED radio and television presenter Vuyo Mbuli, who died on Saturday after a pulmonary embolism, will have a special official funeral on Friday.

Thebe Mohatle, spokesman for Gauteng premier Nomvula Mokonyane, said this means the flag will be flown at half-mast at government buildings on Friday, and Mbuli will be buried at West Park Cemetery in Johannesburg where national heroes are buried.

"Members of the South African Police Service and some cabinet ministers will be present," Mohatle said

Mbuli, 46, collapsed at the Bloemfontein Stadium during a Super Rugby match between the Cheetahs and the Reds. He was rushed to hospital where he was declared dead.

VUYO DIDN'T ASK A STATE FUNERAL, BUT I FOR ONE SAYS HE DESERVES IT.

LOSING SOMEONE OF VUYO STANDING IS A FIRE TO SWALLOW.

S.A HAS LOST ONE OF ITS BEST.

GOD SURE KNOWS HOW TO PICK THE BEST ANGELS.

THE MEMORIES WE HAVE OF YOU WILL ALWAYS BRING JOY IN OUR HEARTS.

@Dzel..What is your problem, man? Why do you hate Vuyo like this?
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

I don't hate the man as stated countless times before.

What I do not like though is this Animal Farm our country is becoming where certain individuals enjoy benefits not open to ordinary and insignificant citizens of the country. We cannot have a situation where cadres are rewarded using state resources or special privileges like these are used to buy favour, reward loyalty or campaign for the ruling party.

My objection is not based on the man but rather it is based on the principle that we are all equal under the law and the state. It is about the difference between right and wrong.

We do not need a new class of fat pigs like the Guptas, the abuse of power starts with small and seemingly insignificant gestures like these.

Gupta did it again. Now they bury comrade Vuyo in an attempt to secure trust in all South African. We will no allow the tendency to expand on the expense ot Vuyo'death. Gupta should focus on their home land Nkandla and give South Africans space enough space to mourn comrade Vuyo. Lala kahle mfondile!!!!!
