Some of the previous as well as present cast of the popular television soapie Generations attended the funeral to bid farewell to their dear colleague and mentor. Lillian Dube, Mary Twala and Don Mattera were among some of the industry heavyweights that also attended.

The packed venue was high with emotions as the crowd mourned Mafela’s passing and danced to his hit song ‘Congo Mama’.

Despite the fiasco with Pastor Mboro that occurred before Mafela’s memorial, the Pastor took the stage and paid tribute to Mafela as well. Mourners did not receive him well and were in shock at his presence.

“Mafela was going places and giving free services, but when you die, you are alone and your family is forgotten. It’s very important to celebrate people when they are alive”, Mboro said.

Mboro also caused a stir when his BMW was used as a photo prop outside the funeral.
