It was all tears at the memorial service of former Bosasa boss Gavin Watson held in Johannesburg on Friday.
Gavin was our leader, our father, our mentor – Papa Leshabane.
We are not here to mourn the life of Gavin, says MC
The service is been conducted at Little Falls Christian Centre in Roodepoort, west of Johannesburg, at 11am.
His funeral is likely to be held in his former home city of Port Elizabeth next week.
Bosasa’s spokesperson Papa Leshabane said.
“The announcement of his funeral details will be made soon. The family is still finalising a few details. It will either be confirmed tomorrow or at the memorial,” Leshabane said on Wednesday.
The invitation to Watson’s memorial service in the Roodepoort is labelled with a quote: “My life was about people, purpose and passion.”
Watson died on Monday after the Toyota Corolla he was driving ploughed into a pillar under a bridge close to OR Tambo International Airport.
The car belonged to Watson’s business, African Global Operations, formerly Bosasa. Watson had borrowed the company car on Sunday “as his car was in for mechanical repairs”.
Police spokesperson Lt-Col Katlego Mogale said the crash happened when the driver allegedly lost control of the vehicle.
A culpable homicide case has been opened
