The memorial service of the late vocalist Nichume Siwundla was held yesterday at the Assembles of God Church in Sandton, Johannesburg.
Nichume past away last week after committing suicide.
Singer Nichume Siwundla spent her last hours at an apartment owned by childhood friend and actor Oros Mampofu.
According to sources, the 27-year-old arrived at the apartment in Edenvale, Ekurhuleni, in the morning with her boyfriend.
“They were visiting a friend at one of the apartments and it didn’t seem as if there was anything wrong when they arrived,” said the source.
“They spent the whole day there and at about 9pm, news broke that someone had killed themselves in one of the units.”
The SunTeam spoke to Oros, who acts in e.tv’s Rhythm City, but he said he didn’t want to comment on the events leading to the suicide out of respect for the Siwundla family.
“I knew her for 20 years. We met in East London during a school trip and ended up being close friends.
“Her parents were practically like parents to me as well. She was a little sister to me, a loving and fun person
“I will never forget how committed she was to her friends and everyone around her. At this moment we need prayers because this is a tough situation.
We are just trying to find healing through God and our pastors.”
Rest in Peace Nichume Siwundla, till we meet Again!
