Mampintsha’s mother has been ill since her son’s death. Zamanguni Gumede’s health began to deteriorate prior to her son’s death, and she has since gotten worse, unable to speak or walk since his death.
Zama’s family claims that when Mampintsha was first hospitalized for a stroke, she couldn’t bear the thought of losing her son.
Pinky Gumede, Mampintsha’s sister, told TSZ Mzansi that her mother is currently receiving medical attention at Wentworth hospital. However, Pinky feels she’s not receiving proper care and is pleading with the public to assist her mother in obtaining the best possible care. She said she would like to transfer her mother to a private hospital.
“Our mother is very sick,” Pinky said. She added, When Mampintsha died in December last year, she became weak and could not walk.”
“A few days later before the funeral, she became worse. She couldn’t sleep and she couldn’t walk. At Mampintsha’s funeral and memorial service, we had to support her. My mother is a bubbly person but she hasn’t been herself since my brother’s death,” Pinki told the publication.
” The doctor says her liver has been affected and she also has been diagnosed with a stroke. But her stroke is not bad, she will not be disabled If she takes her medication. She has not been able to eat properly and that is affecting how she takes her medication.”
She needs a private hospital and a psychologist to help her deal with the trauma, so she can move on. At the moment we do not have money to give her special health care and we are. appealing for help,” Pinky added.
According to Zimoja, Zama is furious about the behaviour of her daughter-in-law, Babes Wodumo. “One; no offence, I love Babes, she and I reunited and made peace at the funeral, but this is not how things are done,” said Zamanguni Gumede.
“Firstly, she is not at home, she is gallivanting in the streets, drinking and partying. Two, she is not wearing traditional mourning clothes. The daughter of a pastor is not following the rules. She is doing things her own way,” added Mampintsha’s mom.
