Neighbours describe Dumi as a “lovely boy from a great family” who always had respect for those around him and loved God.
Soft sobs, gentle whispers and subdued singing is heard as neighbours, family, friends and colleagues, including the entire Rhythm City cast, enter the family home in Kempton Park.
“We are just a normal Christian family that is trying to cope with what has happened. In the last few days we have gone through every emotion you can imagine from shock to sadness to anger and frustration. We are angry but will not hold on to anger. In time, we will forgive the men who killed Dumi,” his brother Mbongeni told TshisaLIVE.
Dumi’s family say that they hope police will find the men responsible for Dumi’s death but don’t need an arrest for closure.
