“I miss Anele so much, and I’m heartbroken at the unfulfilled life we had planned together.

“The tragic loss of Anele has taken a great toll on me, emotionally and psychologically. Insinuations and innuendos made on my personhood have made it even more difficult to process and the strain our families have taken is unspeakable – which is why at this time I choose to retreat to honour my journey, praying that moments of stillness may bring me closer to some clarity.”
