Ebenezer and her mom were the best of friends.
Ebenezer and her mom were the best of friends.

She was due to give birth to her second child.

When the heavily pregnant Prettygirl Sibanda (27) allowed her daughter Ebenezer Ndebele (8) to visit her uncle Zamani Sibanda and aunt Alice Mathema who lived a street away, she had no idea it would be the last time they saw each other. 

Ebenezer would often leave their rented backroom in Katlehong to visit her uncle and aunt so that she could play with friends on their street.
