Funeral venue for Tsekeleke changed due to fear of possible overcrowding
The family of late music veteran Anthony ‘Tsekeleke’ Motaung has decided to move the funeral service for the star from a hall in Tembisa to a church with a much larger capacity.
The artist’s close friend Max “Chief” Mjamba told TshisaLIVE that the funeral service had been moved from the Sam Hlalele community hall to the Dominion Life Cathedral International Church in Kempton Park.
“We made the change because there has been a lot of interest in the funeral and we feared that there would possibly be overcrowding if we had the funeral at the hall. The church has offered their venue for free and we are grateful,” Max said.
Tsekeleke’s memorial on Wednesday was attended by a small crowd of mourners that did not even fill the hall in which it was held, but Max said that the family was expecting a much larger crowd on Saturday.
The funeral service will run from 8am till 11am at the Dominion Life Cathedral International Church, Corner Mokgoro & Silbark streets, Birch-Acres. The star will then be buried at the Heroes Acre Section in Mooifontein Cemetery, Kempton Park.
