Mampintsha’s mother had a long history of illnesses. When her kwaito star son died last December, the 65-year-old’s health took a rapid turn for the worst. Mampintsha passed away in Durdoc Hospital after suffering a second minor stroke. Mampintsha’s mother followed her son to the grave the following month when she took her last breath at Wentworth Hospital in Durban.
