Naphtali Mbuti Nkopane, Tebello Ephraim Ramakgula, Bavumile Herbert Vilakazi, Sekwati John Mokoena, Mkhambi Amos Malindi, Simon Tseko Nkoli, Pelamotse Jerry Tlhopane, Thomas Madixwe Manthata, Hlabeng Sam Matlole, Maxala Simon Bilakazi, Moses Mabokela Chikane, Thabiso Andrew Ratsomo.

He will be buried on Saturday the 28th January 2012 in Zone 3 Sebokeng and the service will start at 07:00 and the cortege will leave shortly before 09:00.
