In other news, Briefly.co.za reported that Lerato 'Zah' Moloi has shaved her hair off in memory of her late mother, Candy Moloi. Candy passed away a month ago after a long battle with cancer. She was aged 67.
Zah took to social media to share a video of herself shaving her head. She expressed that she decided to honour her mother by shaving all her hair because she also did not have hair because of chemotherapy.
"It was important for me to have my hair shaved off today in honour of my Mama... It was brain cancer that killed her essentially. The last 6 months of her life, she didn't have hair on her head due to chemotherapy and that bothered her so much.
"She would often ask me if her hair would ever grow back and I would assure her that it would. She never got the chance to grow her hair back, however she looked absolutely beautiful throughout her graceful battle with cancer."
