Special provincial funeral for September

NATIONAL NEWS - President Jacob Zuma has declared that a special provincial official funeral be held for ANC stalwart Reggie September, the presidency said on Wednesday.

"The special provincial funeral is reserved for distinguished persons as decided by the president of the Republic," spokesman Mac Maharaj said in a statement.

"The president further instructed that the national flag must be flown at half-mast in the Gauteng province on the day of the funeral."

September, 90, died in Cape Town over the weekend. Further details of the funeral would be announced later.

He was a former trade unionist, Member of Parliament, and executive committee member of the African National Congress. September was one of the first non-Africans to be elected onto the ANC's national executive committee, at the Kabwe Conference in Zambia, in 1985.
