This is sad. I don't know what to do. I can't handle this. This is like a burden on my shoulders... I tried as a mother... I did what's best... I did what a woman can do...— Maki Dube, grieving mother
It started in 2011. I recognised it in 2011... All of a sudden he wasn't going to school... The other day he was aggressive with me... I tried as a mother to speak to him to no avail. It tried to take him to rehab... It kept on growing...— Maki Dube, grieving mother
