Iconic photographer and activist Sam Nzima will be laid to rest in Bushbuckridge, Mpumalanga on Saturday.
Nzima died at the age of 83 earlier this month.
He will forever be associated with the photograph he shot of Hector Pietersen during the 1976 Soweto uprisings.

His picture of Mbuyisa Makhubu, holding a dying Pieterson travelled the world.
Ironically, he struggled for years to maintain his copyright of the picture.
Deputy President David Mabuza will deliver the eulogy during the special provincial official funeral.
Flags are to be flown at half-mast across Mpumalanga.
