JOHANNESBURG - The National Funeral Practitioners Association of South Africa (Nafupa SA) on Thursday honoured former president Jacob Zuma in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal.

“He’s done a lot for the country, especially black business. Under his tenure, we have this 30 percent that goes to black business. He’s worked very well with HIV/Aids. People are not dying the same way they used to,” Nafupa President Muzi Hlengwa said.
