Lerato Sengadi has been enduring grief and what she identifies as perpetual anxiety as she rebuilds her life after having to live through a private ordeal in the public eye.

When her husband, Jabulani 'HHP' Tsambo, died about two years ago, she found herself not only having to make court appearances but also managing family discord while dealing with her grief.
