Fortunately, everything has been resolved and Thema's final resting place was chosen.

"Yes, there was a disagreement with the family but now an agreement has been reached. It was more of a misunderstanding because most people knew him to live at his birthplace [Tsepo section in Tembisa]. Most people didn't know he had a house in Midrand."

The 52-year-old actor passed away on Friday, 14 June, at Steve Biko Academic Hospital in Pretoria.

Briefly.co.za learnt that Thema had a long battle with a heart condition.

Thema has been in the acting world for more than two decades and played roles in shows such as Scandal!, Generations, Isibaya and Khululeka, to name just a few.
