Moabi highlighted that only unclaimed bodies are entrusted to the municipality for burial, and each body is laid to rest with the utmost dignity and respect. He emphasized that, as per legal regulations, bodies left unclaimed by families for a period exceeding 30 days following a public notification are eligible for what is known as a ‘pauper’s funeral’ under South Africa’s Pauper Burial Policy.
