The family says those doing this, are unethical and opportunistic.

“We are concerned about a number of organisations and individuals who are using Uyinene’s name for financial gain,” said Thembelani Mrwetyana, a family spokesperson.

“Typically they would approach ordinary South Africans as well as corporate South Africa seeking donations without them having received authorization from the family to do so.”
