My sister @Nomsa Nteleko was the only reason I could smile here. She went through a lot to help me fight this demonic cancer and I know it hasn’t been easy because your life had to stop so you could take care of me. To God be the glory. We won no more pain and suffering, Mama cried saying she doesn’t know how to thank and I said well thank him every day for healing me. Ndibulele nakuni bo Ndlovu Zidékhaya, oMntungwa.
