Daughter, Ms Naicker, said her father would always encourage her and her brothers to complete their education as it had no age barrier.

“When I was young my father would never fail to ask me how my day was and he would ask that question every day and every day in school I would make sure I did something constructive so that I could tell him.

“When I got older I asked my father why he would ask that question when I was in school, he replied and told me that he always wanted me to do something constructive in school so that’s why he asked that question every day,” said Ms Naicker.
