Prof Mzilikazi and wife funeral proceedings to be streamlined on Jhb Theatre social platforms

Due to Covid-19 regulations, the funerals will be broadcast live across all Joburg City Theatres’ youtube pages on 30 June 2021 from 09h00 to 11h00.

The passing on of Rosemary comes a few days after the family was still in the middle of trying to deal with the tragic loss of Professor Mzilikazi who reportedly passed on during the same week on Tuesday.

Professor Mzilikazi Khumalo was part of the committee that amalgamated the Nkosi Sikelel’ iAfrika prayer with Die Stem. Professor Mzilikazi Khumalo (1932-2021), who has died at the age of 89, had a distinguished career as a linguist, which complemented a stellar career in music.

He was the leading composer and director of choral music to emerge from South Africa. His opera, Princess Magogo, was the first by a black South African. Today he is among the most widely performed of all South African composers.

“Prof will forever be remembered for his exceptional composing, directing skills, teaching and sophisticated theoretical African linguistics,” said Xoliswa Nduneni-Ngema, Joburg City Theatres’ CEO.

Due to the adjusted Alert Level 4 lockdown, restrictions to curb the third wave of Covid-19 infections, only 50 family members and relatives will be allowed to attend the funeral observing all COVID19 protocols.
