After a long battle with her late husband’s family, Lerato Sengadi has emerged victorious for the second time after the Tsambo family appealed the South Gauteng high court’s ruling which confirmed that she was Jabulani Tsambo’s customary wife.
On Thursday, the publicist took to her Twitter page to reveal that the Supreme Court of Appeal of South Africa had ruled in her favour, upholding that she was indeed HHP’s customary wife.
“Today, 30 April 2020, the Supreme Court of Appeal of South Africa has RULED IN MY FAVOUR in the appeal of Tsambo v Sengadi!,” she captioned a picture of herself as well as a copy of the ruling by the Supreme Court of Appeal of SA.
The appeal by the Tsambo family came after Lerato was lawfully named HHP’s the customary wife in 2018, when his family refused to recognise her as their daughter-in-law.
Now that the battle is over, Lerato has shared how she can finally erect a tombstone for the late rapper when the pandemic ends.
“As soon as COVID has passed I will finally be able to erect a tombstone 4 Motho waka. The fact that he has been laying there like that & I had been blocked from doing what he deserves has been haunting me all this time. But God is no fool. I will FINALLY get 2 do the right thing,” she wrote.
In an interview with 702 in March, Lerato told Eusebius McKaizer that the battle with her late husband’s family had taken a toll on her.
“It’s emotionally, spiritually and physically draining,” she said.
She also said black widows are often treated unfairly.
“Black widows have been treated in a vile and inhumane way for decades. This conversation is important because at some point we need to say enough is enough, “she said.
Many have taken to Twitter to congratulate her and applaud her for being able to fight for herself.
