She seemed alright when I left her. We were all smiling as she even cracked jokes at our expense. She was cheerful when I left her, and I genuinely believed that she was getting better,” Pinki added. However, this was not the case as she was called back to the hospital hours later.

“I was about to sleep when I received a call from the hospital. I was told to rush to her bedside because she wanted to see us. When I got there, she was already in drips, she was surrounded by the doctors and nurses trying to assist her,” she explained.

“Now that she’s gone, I can see she wanted to bid farewell to us. She told me she was old and that she was leaving. She asked if everyone was around, and I said yes. She wanted to see Sponge, Mampintsha’s son and I told her he was not around. I could see the sadness in her eyes, but she did not say anything. She gave us her blessings and we spent a bit of time with her. We then left. At about 10:00 pm I received a call informing me that she’s dead,” continued Pinki.

She said this is double pain for her. “I am definitely not coping, it’s a double sword for me. I lost two important people within a space of three weeks. But what makes things even harder is that we were not financially prepared for this. As far as policies are concerned, Mampintsha took care of everything. We were still trying to get things in order, but I guess the time was not on our side,” said Pinki.

Mother of Mampintsha had been ailing for some time. When Mampintsha died, she deteriorated more. She needed to be physically carried because she was unable to walk on her own.

She was admitted to Wentworth hospital a few days after Mampintsha’s funeral.
