Appeals to bury beheaded woman
Lindiwe Mhlanga is requesting assistance to bury her sister. Fresh from identifying the body at Nhlangano, Mhlanga said she was bereft as she had no way of sourcing funds to bury the mother of five. She first requested that reporters avoid going to their homestead at Mdumezulu, on the outskirts of Manzini.
Mhlanga said her father was not well and as such she was still trying to find a way of informing him. When called yesterday afternoon, she said she was still bracing herself for the right time as she could not bring herself to inform the elderly man know that the gruesome murder which has gripped the nation was his own daughter. She relented that she was shocked that her sister had been brutally murdered by the person who was supposed to have protected her. She said her sister leaves behind five children two for Khumalo and three from another man. Mhlanga revealed that all the children were minors as the eldest was in Grade Four while the youngest is about 18 months old. “I don’t know what to do as I don’t have anything in hand right now,” she said while leaving Nhlangano. She revealed that she could not even transport her sister’s remains from Nhlangano, “This is what I told the police that I don’t know how will I transport her as I am the only one left. Our mother passed away while our father stays at home helpless as he suffered a stroke,” she lamented. She said she would like her sister’s funeral to fall on the weekend after the police are done with their investigations. She appealed for assistance to cater for the funeral from members of the public saying those who would like to lend a helping hand can contact her on her mobile at
