Lesego Motsepe’s autopsy results were revealed at her funeral service held in Bryanston Methodist Church in Johannesburg.

Lesego’s uncle, Abe Ntlatleng revealed that the actress died of natural causes after she suffered cardiac arrest.

Dr Marlin McKay added that she did not exhibit any diseases usually found in patients with full blown Aids.

“Lesego died with HIV but not from HIV,” said Dr Mckay

Mckay had also cleared up a lot that was misunderstood about the actress at her memorial service held on Thursday.

McKay said Lesego was taking her ARV treatment. She had resumed the treatment in 2012, he said.

Lesego had publicly denounced the use of antiretrovirals  saying there was “a need for a holistic approach to tackling the pandemic as opposed to a hopeless approach with drugs being seen as a do or die solution”.

However McKay said that after that declaration he made contact with the actress and convinced her to resume her treatment.
