The family have requested that rather than flowers, donations be made to a charity close to Simba and the family’s heart for humanitarian organisation JAM (Joint Aid Management) that is currently feeding more than 1 million children on our continent every day.

Upon his move to South Africa, Simba stayed at JAM from the age of 2-years-old and grew up in the missionary.

what part of "Upon his move to South Africa, Simba stayed at JAM from the age of 2-years-old and grew up in the missionary" did some of you not understand? what's the point of buying flowers which will soon die and Simba will never get to smell? its actually a very nice gesture the family have requested of the public and friends. Simba comes from humble beginning and the missionary shaped him to be what he had become. what great way to honour his memory by contributing and donating to the missionary so they can continue helping and taking care of other kids?! he was a TV personality so its only fair they do broadcast the memorial for those who can not make it there and truly like him. Why should he be buried in Zim? He was now a SA citizen (including his parents) his friends and life was here not Zim. Why are you being hateful and mean? I guess that was a joke ha?! oh, well I guess it not your brother, husband,friend,father or worse a south African so I guess you're allowed to make your mean jokes. plain right disrespectful and idiotic. have you no compassion?! please don't answer will probably be rude and arrogant in your answer to make me look like I am stuck up and you the jokester of the year that never takes anything seriously. #RIPSIMBA

Agreed. However - and no disrespect intended - I would love to know how one grows up "in a missionary". SOWETAN, could you throw some light on this unique language usage?

@ROBIN i agree with you ,sowetans use of the queens language is pathetic i think they are trying to say religious missionary setting!
