The statement added that the family understood that a lot of the late Lepota’s friends, comrades, extended family members and the community in general would like to be part of the mourner’s who would pay their last respects on Saturday.

“However, given the seriousness of the national state of disaster we all find ourselves in as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak, the family is pleading with everyone to respect these restrictions. This call of adherence to the rule of law, first made by President Cyril Ramaphosa, is in the best interest of the nation. Undoubtedly, Chief Whip Lepota would have supported it. A memorial service will be organized once life in our country returns to normal and only when regulations permit,” concluded the statement.
