CityPress - - News -

Nqo­bile’s par­ents had tem­po­rar­ily banned the young girl’s favourite song, Go­bisi Iqolo by Bhizer and Bu­siswa, from the house.

When it played on the ra­dio, her mother knew it was time to move the cof­fee ta­ble be­cause Nqo­bile was about to hit the dance floor.

But she will never see her daugh­ter dance again.

Nqo­bile wanted to be a nurse. Such was her pas­sion for nurs­ing that she asked her mother to buy her a stetho­scope, which she used on her dolls, which dou­bled up as her pa­tients.
