Port Elizabeth - Late African Global Operations, formerly Bosasa, boss Gavin Watson will be laid to rest in Port Elizabeth on Tuesday.
Mourners gathered at the Feather Market Hall in the city for a service where his family members are expected to pay tribute to Watson, who many described as “a man of God”.
Pallbearers include his son Roth Watson, his son-in-law Arno Van Deventer and his nephews, Jared, Daniel and Valence Watson.
The businessman died in a car crash outside OR Tambo International Airport on August 26.
Watson made headlines when former Bosasa CFO Angelo Afrizzi alleged that the late businessman was the mastermind behind Bosasa's dodgy contracts with the government worth billions of rands.
