  1. Good afternoon

    My husband passed away on 24 July 2023.
    The following week I duly notified his ABSA BANK at ABSA SQUARE in Nelspruit, having to produce his death certificate and ID card. They informed me his bank accounts would be sealed.

    All my husband’s relevant documents, including bank statements, are at present with the executed of his estate.
