Her mother revealed that Nonhlanhla was brought up well and attended expensive schools.
“We gave her everything she wanted because she was the only child at the time,” Her mother Dolly said.
Tebogo, Nonhlanhla’s friend praised her for being loving but at the same time, she is also impudent.
“We have been friends forever,” Tebogo said about her benefactor.
Nonhlanhla was also very close to her aunt Ayanda whom she drinks booze with occasionally having been raised by Ayanda and her grandmother Zodwa.
This is how her story about blowing R1 million Road Accident Fund payout went:
Her mother narrated that Nohlanhla was involved in a road accident about 9 pm one summer night. Having left home to have some wine with friends, Nonhlanhla did not return but only woke up in a hospital.
She successfully applied for RAF and after two years, she received two cheques totalling R1 million from her lawyers.
She asked her lawyer to write a cash cheque for R10,000 and she spent it on the first day.
My lawyer called me to his office and gave me cheques of R500,000 each. and I asked him to write a cheque for R10,000 which he did. We went on to spend the money on groceries and Nando’s chicken,” Nonhlanhla narrated.
She was left with R3,000 and bought booze for herself and friends.
“I was alone when I received a notification from the bank for R490,000. I told my neighbour that I know got some money. She said we must pray about it and I refused. I told her I’m leaving and see you when I’m back. I remember that I even forgot to lock the house. I went to tell my friend Nhlanhla, she lives across the road. She did not believe me and left to see my other friend Tebogo. I called her while she was still at work. I told her to leave work as I was rich.”
Tebogo complied and went home to start partying with her friend.
“I changed my clothes and we started partying on a Friday until Saturday morning,” Tebogo said. I could not sleep, I would wake up rereading the SMS. I woke up in the morning and went to Maponya mall. I even bought things I did not need. We went shopping every day and came back with plastic bags.”
“I took my grandmother for grocery shopping. When we got to Diepkloof Square, I told her to take whatever she wanted. She was very sceptical to use the money. I called a taxi to take her to her house in Diepkloof. I gave her R5,000.”
Her grandmother Zodwa said Nonhlanhla would turn up at her house in the morning with Pizzas.
“She would come to my house in the morning with a box of Pizza in the morning. I would tell her its too early for Pizza. She would tell me to be sexy and have the Pizza in my morning gown. I would then eat it. SHe would randomly give me R200 notes to buy cold drinks,” Zodwa said.
Her aunt Ayanda is grateful that Nonhlanhla bought her a Peruvian weave.
