Nyathi (43) will be laid to rest at Umvutcha cemetery on Saturday after a church service to be held at Brethren In Christ Church in the New Lobengula suburb.

The government granted him a state-assisted funeral while South Africa based funeral insurance company Zororo-Pumulani pledged to repatriate his body at no cost.


Nyathi worked in Fourways, a Johannesburg Metropolitan suburb as a gardener twice a week where he was making R200 a day.


He was stoned and burnt to death by vigilantes in Diepsloot, north of Johannesburg, Gauteng Province, South Africa.

Nyathi originally hailed from Malaba, in Matobo District, Matabeleland South Province.
