“My mother was a giant. A king. She came from nothing and had the task of breaking many generational curses; blessing many family members in between. She was a dedicated public servant; a pioneer and activist who changed many people’s lives. To my brother and I, though, she was Mommy. My BEST FRIEND. My confidant. My greatest fan. My prayer warrior. Our queen that we so dearly loved and revered. Words will never be enough to express our appreciation for the love and affection that she single-handedly raised us with. We never lacked; and when the opportunity presented itself, we ensured that she never did too – and we are appreciative of this. We thank God that she lived long enough to watch her children be successes in their own rights, and bless her for it in return. Today, we are at peace knowing that she rests with the knowledge that she was loved and appreciated immensely.
Thank you so much to everyone that has extended a hand during this incredibly difficult time. I may not be able to answer every call, text or DM – but I see them, and I’m appreciative. May God continue to bless you all and watch over your loved ones.
Hamba kahle Njinji. Yengwayo. Our hearts are in shambles, but we remain as strong as you were. I am so proud to be your daughter, Manqondo. I’ll always walk tall. You did it!
She concluded by thanking her fans and friends for being supportive to her and her family during this time.“I may not be able to answer every call, text or DM but I see them and I’m appreciative. May God continue to bless you all and watch over your loved ones,” said Gumede.
