The video has resulted in social media users reacting in shock and disgust at the man's actions according to Jacaranda FM.
Here are some reactions to the video by Facebook users:
"This is not only happening in South Africa even here in Lesotho... My friend did this after finding that she is positive saying she can't die alone..she even spoke without her mask and blaming people that charted with her with a mask on they did not know that she is positive, likely non of them died but their parents are still dying even now..."

Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that Police Minister Bheki Cele's spokesperson Lirandzu Themba has revealed that all officers on duty at Jackson Mthembu's funeral are in hot water.
Cele announced that an internal investigation has been launched looking into all officers who had attended the late Minister's funeral:
“What was supposed to actually happen there was that Police should have verbally asked the Premier to wear a mask which failure to do so should have resulted in an arrest."
In other news, Premier Refilwe Mtsweni-Tsipane has apologised for her maskless appearance at Jackson Mtembu's funeral.
However, the Mpumalanga branch of the Economic Freedom Fighters has opened a case against the ANC politician.
The Red Berets want the Premier to be charged with failure to wear a mask in public over the incident.
Provincial EFF leader Collen Sedibe has made it clear that the Premier's apology has been rejected:
“We have opened a case against the Premier for contravening the COVID-19 regulations and mandatory protocol because she was seen in public without wearing a mask during the funeral of Mr Jackson Mthembu in eMalahleni."
