The South African media personality shared a moving tribute at the funeral of her three-year-old daughter, Linile Vunani Mzolo.
She spoke about how her daughter was the light of her family, especially after the passing of her son, Dunamis, in 2015.
“Linile healed my heart, she blessed our souls, she was the light of the family especially after we lost Dunamis,” said the grieving mom.
She described her daughter as someone who “was so full of life”.
Ntombi also shared about how on the day of her daughter’s passing, she insisted on being with her the whole day and even told her she loved her.
“She told me that she loved me and I knew … I know that it was time,” said the emotional mom.
The star said she has been finding strength in the support from her family and her husband.
She added that she believes that Linile lived her life to the full, and her passing was God’s will.
“I want to thank God because God knew what we needed when he blessed us with Linile. I thank God that I got to spend the whole day with her on the day that she passed. I thank God that I was there because that has allowed me to accept and allowed me to realise that nothing more could have been done … it was time,” she said.
