The provincial government says this is a huge loss, not only to the Xhosa nation but to the Eastern Cape at large.

Co-operative Governance (Cogta) MEC, Xolile Nqata, says the family will be involved in the preparations.

“The decision on which stage of a funeral will be made by the premier in consultation with the national government. We will be filing a report to the premier for that decision to be made as to which funeral the King deserves.”
