Flags are flew at half mast across the Western Cape in honour of legendary stage and screen actress Shaleen Surtie-Richards.
The 66-year- old died at a guest house in Cape Town on Monday. Arts and Culture Minister, Nathi Mtwethwa and his Western Cape counterpart, Anroux Marais, joined family representatives in Durbanville this morning for a flag raising ceremony at the local police station. Surtie-Richards has been given an official provincial funeral.
President Cyril Ramaphosa announced earlier this week the actress will be given an official provincial funeral. Surtie-Richards will be laid to rest at the Durbanville Cemetery on Sunday afternoon.
