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

The organisation credits him for having played a critical role in radical economic transformation during his tenure.

Nafupa SA said Zuma was the founding father of radical economic transformation and also thanked him for his breakthrough in the fight against HIV/Aids in South Africa.

“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.
