Ngatane mentioned that Mokonyane declared that items were delivered to her house only once, as the hall in Kagiso where they were intended to go was under renovations. She says her house did not have much space to store too many items and that Agrizzi claims that she received assistance from Bosasa in burying a family relatives was insensitive and defamatory.
She said she is a proud woman and family person who would not accept help of that natureNthakoana Ngatane, EWN reporter
