ACTRESS Simphiwe Ngema told mourners her husband had many talents.
Simphiwe, who was wearing a white dress with a veil, said one of those talents was loving her.
“He did (it) effortlessly,” she said.
Simphiwe, mourning the death of her husband, Dumisani Masilela, was emotional.
Mourners sobbed uncontrollably as Simphiwe sang a gospel song, standing by her husband’s coffin, which was draped in a South African flag.
Ekurhuleni Mayor, Mzwandile Masina, received a standing ovation when he announced that Dumisani’s alleged killers had been apprehended.
The mayor announced that a new theatre in Ekurhuleni would be named after Dumisani.
Masina also said that he’d called upon the justice cluster not to fail them, as the people had been failed before.
“I’ve worked very closely with Dumisani and his wife here in Ekurhuleni. I’ve known him personally. He was a humble and thoughtful individual,” said the mayor.
The funeral, held at the Hope Restoration Ministries, was attended by a number of celebrities. Most of them were Dumisani’s colleagues on the popular e.tv soapie, Rhythm City.
