Thando spoke to Briefly News about how both she and her brother had complicated relationships with their parents.

Thando explained that her brother was starting to do well in life after starting his own business. Their relationship also improved.

However, things went south when her brother got introduced to the party life.

"In 2017 he ran away from home. I guess he felt like he failed and he was a proud person.
"I didn’t really get hurt when he stole from me because I knew that it was a possible outcome. I was disappointed even though I had convinced myself that I should expect less but I had a tiny bit of hope," Thando shared.

Thando said that she learned her lesson and won't be reaching out to her brother again.
