Rajbansi funeral to take place on Saturday
The funeral service for the leader of Minority Front, Amichand Rajbansi will be held in Durban, a family spokesperson said on Friday.
“The funeral service will be held in Durban, at the Chatsworth stadium in Chatsworth on Saturday, from 11.30am to 4pm,” Patrick Pillay said.
His body would then be taken to the Clare Estate crematorium where he would be cremated at 5pm.
Rajbansi died aged 69 on Thursday morning, after being admitted to hospital in Umhlanga, outside Durban, in October with bronchitis.
Senior ANC members and members of the KwaZulu-Natal legislature were expected to visit the Rajbansi family on Friday.
The ANC and Minority Front had a cooperation agreement which led to Rajbansi serving in the ANC-led KwaZulu-Natal cabinet from 2004 to 2009, as the provincial minister for sports and recreation.—Sapa
