Pule's uncle Tumisang Katake says Tshegofatso was full of life and she was in the process of going back to school to finish her studies.
Speaking to Azania Mosaka, Katake says the police are updating them regularly.
She was full of life. She grew up without her parents but she never let that pull her down. She knew what would make her happy in life.Tumisang Katake - Uncle of Tshegofatso Pule
