JOHANNESBURG - The funeral service of late health spokesperson Joe Maila is underway at the Potter’s House Church in Polokwane.
Maila died last Thursday after allegedly accidentally shooting himself, at a shooting range in Silverton.
Police are investigating the matter.
Many have described him as a seasoned communicator.
Scores have gathered at the church in Ivy Park, including high-ranking government officials and dignitaries.
On Thursday, during a memorial service, Health Minister Aaron Motsoaledi refuted the term “spin doctor” which some have used to describe Maila, saying he did his job truthfully and to the best of his abilities.
