He died in car accident with his immediate family on On the 20th of November 2005. without any registered next of kin. Several efforts were made to find his extended family through your embassy without success.

According to the Government Law here , at the expiration of 10 years the fund will revert to the ownership of the South African Government, if nobody applies to claim the fund.
