MKHWAKHWENI –  As pallbearers carried the casket of Minister of Public Service Christian Ntshangase to the grave and placed it on wooden struts, his widow maintained composure.

The atmosphere changed when police officers who carried the casket to the grave and metal straits asked a pallbearer from United Holdings (Dups Funeral Home) to position it for lowering. Relatives cried. This was during the State funeral for the late Minister of Public Service, Christian Myekeni Ntshangase who died on January 16, 2021 while admitted for COVID-19-related illnesses.


He died of an undisclosed illness which was precipitated by COVID-19. Notably, Ntshangase’s wife, Nomsa, had her emotions under control and managing to fight back tears, but she couldn’t withstand it anymore when the casket was lowered into the grave. She knew who to cry to as she turned to her creator, whom she called to assist her gain strength. As the casket moved slowly to the grave, she got an opportunity to pray to God to cleanse her heart so that she could ascend to Heaven someday.

Mourners watched her pray. They listened to her attentively. Of course they sympathised with her. However, her prayer made mourners realise that the widow actually purposed to make her ways right with God so that she could reconcile with the her husband whom she described as a true warrior, a loving and caring man who was not ashamed of publicly exalting her.
At the graveyard, she said her wish was to see God when her days on earth are over. She raised her hands, thanking the Man Above for being with her. She said she wouldn’t have made it if God was not with her. Nomsa said she had seen God giving strength to other people and her husband’s death drew Him to her side for a divine touch and support she would cherish for the rest of her life.
