Nokuthula Mayisela (8), Grade 2, Re­fano Pri­mary

CityPress - - News -

Nokuthula was the ap­ple of her mother’s eye. Ev­ery­where her mother went, she would be there, cud­dled up un­der her arm.

She loved to watch car­toons all day, and caused a stir when­ever some­body changed the chan­nel.

A bub­bly girl, she be­lieved that ev­ery­thing in the house was hers, es­pe­cially the tele­vi­sion.

Even on the eve of her tragic death, she went to bed with the re­mote con­trol.

Her mother found it hid­den un­der her pil­low the next day.

Nokuthula’s par­ents have no idea what she wanted to be when she grew up. All she said was she will never leave home. She would stay with her mother for­ever.
