Van Staden is a teacher at Hoërskool Ben Vorster in Tzaneen.

She alleges that she was not feeling well on Saturday and went to a doctor who booked her off from work. She then visited her father's place at Bela-Bela. She is now recovering at her father's place at Bela-Bela and when she gets better, she will get back to work.
