The memorial service for former president Thabo Mbeki's mother, Epainette Mbeki, will be held at the King Hintsa FET College in Dutywa in the Eastern Cape at noon on Thursday.

MaMbeki died in a private hospital in East London on Saturday after a short illness.  Mbeki (98) will be accorded a Special  Provincial Official funeral at her home in the Ngcingwane village of Dutywa on Saturday.

The Presidency says the honour is reserved for distinguished South African citizens who have made a meaningful contribution to nation-building.
