Florence Masebe’s closest friend Basetsana Kumalo was one of the pillars of strength for the Masebe family in the time of mourning their 18-month-old son who drowned on Saturday.

With a few media publications reporting that there was a birthday celebration during the occurrence of the incident, Basetsana went on instagram to set the record straight on the details of the untimely death of Florence’s son and shared her condolences to the grieving family.

I am sitting on Florence Masebe's bed for the last few hours, to bring condolences as she mourns the gut wrenchingly untimely passing of her beautiful 18 months old baby boy! My friend is beyond gutted and so is her entire family! To learn that some media including some tabloid online publication called The Juice, claims that there was a "bash" in celebration of Florence birthday on Saturday is most disturbing,devoid of any truth and smacks of sensationalism to say the least. Here are the facts, she was home alone with her two children, there were only two adults present: herself and her older daughter! Right now she is trying to make sense of this tragedy and needs peace and quiet and not malicious reporting. Rest in peace Masakona! Matsila! Mukololo wa Vhalaudzi vha Gwamasenga! Mbado!!!! Rest in peace beautiful angel, rest in peace Prince. Your mother loves you.

Find Love!
