- Renowned SA tombstone maker, Lebogang Khitsane, died on Thursday from renal failure
- His memorial service took place over the weekend and his sister definitely stole the show
- During her speech, the mourning sibling accused Khitsane's wife of having an affair while he was still living
A memorial service is supposed to honour the person who died. However, Lebogang Khitsane's service turned into something only seen in reality shows.
The tombstone maker died last week from renal failure and his funeral will take place on Tuesday. However, during a memorial service over the weekend, things got heated between his sister and wife.
His sister took the stage to deliver a speech but instead of talking about the type of person her brother was, the woman decided to air some dirty laundry.
She accused her sister-in-law of bringing another man into their home while he was still alive. Her comments caused outrage and at first someone hurled an object at her before another woman showed up on stage to physically take her on.
A couple men had to break up the fight and a clip of the incident went viral on social media, Briefly.co.za gathered.
Take a look at the video below:
South Africans were shocked over the behaviour at the memorial service and many were left with opposing views.
Twitter user, @SeseTetiwe, commented:
"Lebogang Khitsane’s sister was out of line. His memorial wasn’t the place to air his laundry."
Another tweep, @Tumi_Writes, said:
"The late, Lebogang Khitsane's sister dragging his wife during the memorial service for cheating is the WILDEST."
However, in true Mzansi style, social media users reacted to the clip with hilarious memes.
In other news, musician Vhudi has been booted out of Idols SA. The 20-year-old man stole many people's hearts when he performed his original song My Yoki Yoki on the singing competition.
When he auditioned in Johannesburg a few weeks ago, the show's judges Somizi Mhlongo, Randall Abrahams, Unathi Nkanyi and guest judge Buhle Mda sang along to the musician's song.
The Limpopo-born star also became an instant hit on Mzansi's Twitter. Many people were impressed by his song. Vhudi has now been booted out of the show and many South Africans believe that one of the reasons he was given the boot is because he has already signed a record deal. Check out some of the comments from the viewers of the show.
