In an earlier tribute, Ms Ncube's family said she was a "devoted mother who lived for her children, family, and friends".

They said: "Percy was an active member of her church and had created a beautiful community for herself and her children.

"Her passing has left us with an immeasurable sense of loss.

"Our focus now is on supporting her children as they continue their journey without their mother."
