Ontlametse was one of 2 girls in SA that suffered from a rare disease called progeria that caused rapid aging - she died a week ago as a result of lung failure, after touching the lives of many South Africans and being an example of how to live life against all odds

At the risk of sounding completely insensitive or heartless but surely there's some sort of guidelines as to who gets a State Funeral? Surely? As much as this was a rare disease - there are other kids in the country that die of rare disease that are equally deserving so no - personally I don't think she should

To be fair - the state has or will be pursuing some of her last wishes. 1. She met the president 2. The president bought her family a car 3. The state will be building a home for her family - those were 3 things she'd noted before dying. The state has already contributed
