She is always under the cautious eye of her 47-year-old mother Buyiswa Mafiyane.

Buyiswa told Briefly News that since birth, life has been a struggle for the teen. Yamkela needs special attention because she is unable to move around on her own due to her disability.

Her lower limbs and joints are misshapen and very weak and both her knees are twisted at bad angles. She lives a lonely life at home as a result.

When her doting and loving mother does take her outside to get a little sun, Yamkela is carried in a small, plastic round washtub that often breaks. Buyiswa then replaces the broken bathtub with a new one.
