According to those in attendance, Chillies Bengu’s funeral was so “lit”, most didn’t know if it was a party or a funeral. While some even asked if Chillies Bengu was a celebrity or a criminal.
Heavy police presence marked Umlazi Township, south of Durban ahead of the funeral of a gang leader Sandile Chillies Bhengu who was gunned down during a shootout with the police last week.
Bhengu’s body arrived in uMlazi on Friday afternoon. His memorial service which was held at a local hall this week was characterised by spinning of cars, loud dance music and gun wielding.
All of Umlazi cheered as they sent “Chillies” to his final resting place.
