The conflict between Babes Wodumo’s family, the Simelanes, and the paternal family of her late husband Mandla “Mampintsha” Maphumulo has not ended.
Last week, prior to supposedly being hospitalized, Mampintsha’s mother, Zamanguni Gumede, voiced displeasure with her daughter-in-manner law’s of mourning for her son.
While The Wololo hitmaker’s sister Nondumiso Simelane supported the performer in an interview with TshisaLIVE on January 11, she told Zimoja that her family does not believe that Zamanguni is ill.
Nondumiso asserts that Pinky, the deceased Big Nuz member’s sister, would have told the Simelanes if her mother had been ill.
“If she was seriously ill, Pinky would call and inform the family. Why has nobody called?” Nondumiso asked.
Babes Additionally, Wodumo’s sister criticized Pinky’s character, labeling her “evil.”
“Pinky has a serious problem. She is the vile sister-in-law nobody desires. She wanted to choose a wife for Mandla, and when she was unable to do so, she made everyone’s lives difficult.
She told the publication that Pinky claims Babes Wodumo’s family had gotten a lump payment in the aftermath of Mampintsha’s death.
“Babes even attempted to reconcile with the mother-in-law, but Pinky stood in the way. Despite the fact that Babes sent groceries during the funeral arrangements, she remains ingratitude. “She is telling everyone that we received Mandla’s life insurance, but we did not,” she continued.
“I’ve heard that the Simelane family is aware that she is hospitalized, but I’m scared I’ll be the one to phone and appear to be bothering them.
“I have no idea what we’ve done to them. We are not selfish people; I just want her to be well so she can cope with the death of her son. “Even the new teeth that Mandla put in her mouth are beginning to rot, and the doctor needs to remove them, but he can’t because we lack the funds,” Pinky added.
When her mother’s hospitalization was published, Zimoja disclosed that she, too, had suffered a mild stroke.
On December 24, Mampintsha passed away after suffering a mild stroke.
Pinky has now provided an update, stating that her mother has tuberculosis.
“Last week, she was unable to walk or speak, but she is doing much better today.” She is undoubtedly improving. She is consuming food and meds. We simply require data so that she can receive the appropriate treatment for her particular strain of TB. After obtaining the latest batch of blood tests, we shall know,” she stated.
