In April, a beautiful young lady took to Twitter to detail how her mother was stressed about the coronavirus reaching SA's shores.

The young lady, who recently turned 25 years old, added in another tweet that she was not worried because they have good medical care in Port Elizabeth should her mom fell ill.
However, barely two months later, @NwabisOmiya had to share devastating news with her followers.
She revealed her mom had passed away, but @NwabisOmiya did not detail the conditions surrounding her death.
"When I received that call from 041 I knew it was time to put my big girl panties on. Having to call my family yesterday to inform them of the news the hospital had just told me was so hard, hay usi qhathile ntombi. RIP MaMiy."
She added in another tweet:
"Kodwa ke kuyo yonke lonto, andimsoli uThixo. Andilili njengomntu ongenathemba. Mama bezobuza, 'Bekufuneka ibengu Mama kabani Mntanam kuze ilunge'? uThixo uzosithwala. (But through it all I’m not angry at God. I’m not crying like someone with no hope. Mom would ask me: 'Whose mother should have passed away for you to feel better?' God will carry us.)"
The post broke thousands of hearts and Mzansi tweeps sent their condolences to @NwabisOmiya and her family.
