It is rumored that Mampintsha mother, Zamanguni Gumede, has been denied access to her son’s body. Mampintsha passed away on Saturday after he suffered a stroke last week.

“[Mampintsha’s sister Pinky has also reportedly said that they [Maphumulo family] have found out that they have will not been included in the funeral arrangements,” the paper said.
“[We don’t know what we have done wrong because we did not have disagreements with anyone. They are even denying Mampintsha’s father access. My mother wants to see her son and this has taken a toll on her health],” Pinky allegedly said.
