“I’m still in disbelief and haven’t been myself since I heard the news, I was hopeful. 😭💔 God’s will and time. My prayer goes out to your children and loved ones” wrote Mothibi Tshego.
“I’m still angry, still not at peace with all these details, I know with time I will adjust to reality that I will never read her positive thoughts, her mischievousness, her jokes, her 65 million babies, her workouts ethics, ooh Zo, that I will not hear her laughters after giving her brother’s phone number mistakenly to a stranger😂 and all sort of mischievousnesses! I don’t know what stage I am currently, is it anger, shock or denial?
Rest easy beautiful mama❤️. You were loved baby girl🥰”
“Rest easy Queen. What a humble soul. So many people loved you genuinely because you were just like one of us. Till me meet again.
