UPDATE: Sobukwe funeral no longer official

JOHANNESBURG - All government officials and police have left the funeral venue of Zondeni Veronica Sobukwe after factions of the Pan African Congress disrupted proceedings on Saturday.

Some PAC members refused to recognise the South African national anthem.

PAC leader Narius Moloto was also chased away from the venue.

Deputy President David Mabuza abandoned the funeral proceedings shortly after the disruption. 

Musician Thandiswa Mazwai had to quickly perform on stage to calm the crowds.
