Mom’s tribute to Akhumzi Jezile: ‘No feeling is worse than this’

Jezile’s best friend Musa Mthombeni struggled to hold back his tears as he recalled the day he heard about the tragedy.

“One week ago, I received a call that changed my life.

“My life was thrown off its axis and since then, I have been spinning endlessly in a profound state of confusion.

“I find it very hard to believe that any of this is happening. I am so puzzled by all that’s been happening,” he added.
