Elvis Nyati’s funeral at Zim. See what was dropped in his Grave, leaving tongues wagging. Video
It took Elvis Nyathi a long time to die at the hands of people who were cruel, ruthless, and overzealous in Diepsloot, but the Zimbabwean government is paying for his funeral.
May he rest in peace.
Last week, a Zimbabwean national who was living in South Africa was killed in cold blood by angry Diepsloot residents who wanted to see their documents.
Nyathi was caught in the middle of the chaos when he left work. He was viciously beaten by the blood-hungry mob before being doused in flammable liquid and set on fire.
Nyathi’s brother Godknows: “My brother, his wife, and other people hid behind their shack. The group found them and chased them because they thought they were criminals.” There was no violence in him. “He wasn’t an angry man. He had very good morals.”
Misheck Sibanda, who is the Chief Secretary to the President and Cabinet, said that Nyathi’s funeral will be paid for by the State.
An official state funeral has been held for the late Elvis Nyathi who was killed in South Africa last week. His Excellency President ED Mnangagwa has helped pay for the funeral.
