According to reports the church wanted a whooping 89k, needless to say the memorial service will not be held at the controversial church anymore.

“We visited the Joe Mafela home last night to pay our respects. I was shocked to learn that Grace Bible Church, in Soweto, wanted a fee of R89000 for the memorial. When the head pastor [Musa] Sono was consulted, he offered a R10k discount. Needless to say, there was no deal as this is totally ridiculous. This is supposed to be ‘a house of God’ serving the community,” actor Mangaliso Ngema wrote on Facebook.
