Her death has sparked controversy on social media after a report dated June 27, 2019 and signed by the Director-General of the Department of Health, Republic of South Africa, stated that she died of “unnatural causes consistent with strangulation”.
Friends and family members said on a website set up in her memory that she was murdered. They also accused the South African government and the hotel management of not doing enough to bring her alleged killers to justice.
It was alleged that the hotel had failed to provide CCTV footage to the police which would assist in the investigation.
