What was supposed to be Port Elizabeth businessman Kutloano Headbush’s homecoming celebration with friends and family, instead became his funeral.
Before his death, Headbush asked his aunt Talks Gunguluza to prepare a party for Saturday.
Instead, Gunguluza spoke at his funeral at the Nangoza Jebe Hall on Saturday where she mentioned his “premonition”.
“He saw things from a spiritual point of view. He told me ‘I am going home, aunt’. He said let us prepare a big function for October 15.
What day is it today?” she asked.
Headbush, 52, was the former president of the National African Federated Chamber of Commerce(Nafcoc).
He died at the Steve Biko Academic Hospital in Pretoria after spending three months there.
Economic Development, Environmental Affairs and Tourism MEC Sakhumzi Somyo also spoke.
“He made great strides in business. Nafcoc provided him [with] a platform to give advice to black businesses. He lived and breathed Nafcoc,” Somyo said.
The ANC realised from the out set that business is a vital mechanism to address unemployment.
Let us not fail him in death and let us not fail him in life.” Other speakers described Headbushas a selfless, loving, humble man who put others first.
