Former minister of Public Works, Stella Sigcau, will be laid to rest in the place of her birth today. President Thabo Mbeki, is scheduled to address mourners, who have been flooding into the towns of Port St. Johns and Lusikisiki in the Transkei to pay their respects to Sigcau. Sigcau, who was first appointed the minister of public enterprises in 1994, and later minister of Public Works in 1999, died last week in the St Augustine Hospital in Durban after suffering heart problems. She was 69 at the time of her death.
