The president delivered the eulogy.

He will be laid to rest in Sekhukhuneland.

Ramaphosa said the Bapedi nation is now facing a dark cloud.

“It wasn’t long ago that the Bapedi nation welcomed the promising reign of a new leader. His passing - he was so youthful and visionary and full of life, it has shaken our very being.”
