Mampintsha’s mother, ZamaNguni Gumede, has died. Several reports have it that she suffered a stroke after the death of her son Mampintsha and she breathed her last on 15 January 2023 at Wentworth Hospital. ZamaNguni was aged 64, and the news of her death was confirmed by Mampintsha’s sister Pinky.
The Gumede family was still mourning the death of Mampintsha, and other dark clouds stuck them again. Although ZamaNguni had been sick for a while before her son’s death in December. Her healthy worsened after Mampintsha died. It looks like the sudden death of Mampintsha did not sit well with his mother, ZamaNguni, which led to her passing.
Mampintsha’s sister Pink revealed that her mother died around 10 pm, and before her death, she had requested to see Sponge, her grandson. However, her last wish could not be fulfilled as Sponge was with his mother, Babes Wodumo, at her place. Talking to the news reporters, Pinky said;
Now that she’s gone, I can see that she wanted to bid farewell to us. She told me she was old and that she was leaving. She asked if everyone was around and I said yes. She wanted to see Sponge, Mampintsha’s son and I told her he was not around. I could see the sadness in her eyes and she did not say anything. She gave us her blessing and we spent some time with her. We then left. At about 10h00 I received a call informing me that she is dead
