A guard of honour was formed as the casket was driven into the cemetery grounds.

Upon arrival, a short sermon and prayer was done. It was then that her family broke down in tears as they watched Siya's casket being lowered.

Mourners then made their way past the casket to throw in some sand or a flower.
