JOHANNESBURG - Two memorial services will be held in Durban and Johannesburg for businessman and former national rugby boss Louis Luyt this week.

The 80-year-old died on Friday after he was admitted to a Durban hospital with a heart condition.

Luyt's family said a private cremation ceremony will be held for immediate family members only.

But Louis Luyt Jr on Sunday said the public would be able to attend either of the memorial services.

In Durban, the public will be able to pay their final respects at the Simbithi Country Club on Wednesday at 2.30pm and at the Sandton Sun in Johannesburg on Friday at 8.30pm.

Dr Luyt has been remembered as a visionary, a bully and a man who came from nowhere to become powerful and influential.

His role as former South African Rugby Union (Saru) President was considered instrumental in the Springboks’ 1995 World Cup win.
