Who's paying for Senzo Meyiwa's funeral?

That's the question Gareth asked while funeral proceedings were taking place at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban. The radio personality tweeted got a lot mixed reactions after tweeting: "Who's paying for this massive funeral for #SenzoMeyiwa?"

Fans, including TV presenter Lerato Kganyago, hit back by telling Gareth that it was too soon to be asking such questions. Others found the tweet insensitive and unnecesary.

One person tweeted: @GarethCliff you really need to shut up." While another asked who cares.

Gareth responded to another fan by tweeting: "Well I never supported Pirates and I'm sad he's gone but Messi wouldn't get this in Argentina, and Senzo was no Messi." 

Gareth questioned how he was being insensitive for asking about one of the biggest non-political funerals in SA history.
