Nkosi­nathi was a bril­liant child, re­spect­ful and shy, says his aunt Nicki Mahlangu.

He was good in math­e­mat­ics and sci­ence and wanted to be­come a sci­en­tist

He was in­sep­a­ra­ble from his younger brother, Ayanda. They did ev­ery­thing to­gether, in­clud­ing swim­ming.

His fam­ily will miss him be­cause of the re­spect he af­forded ev­ery­one, ir­re­spec­tive of age.

He would walk in to the room and greet ev­ery­one with­out mak­ing eye con­tact. That is how shy he was,” Mahlangu says.
