“Just like her name says, Thato had love for everyone no matter whether you are poor or rich. We are truly heartbroken, but her love and warmth will live on,” said Shakes Shimane Molapisi, who was a childhood friend since 1984.
He said that it was a pity that she was going to be buried under the Covid-19 burial regulations, with no crowds of mourners allowed to attend.
“She was such a vibrant and caring person who enjoyed being with people, so it’s a shame that she has to be buried like a pauper,” said Molapisi.
