Solofelang Tlhwaafalo is still reeling in shock after her longtime boyfriend she lived with for years at her family home disappeared into thin air following a tragedy that befell her family and claimed two lives.

On Tuesday last week, Tlhwaafalo and her siblings were rushed to hospital after they drank tea in the morning, which they had prepared using water stored in containers.

The tea allegedly claimed the life of Gakeitshege Montshosi, 62, and another villager who stopped by the family home to comfort the bereaved after hearing of the sad news of Montshosi's passing. Currently, two others are still fighting for their lives at Bokamoso Private Hospital— Tlhwaafalo's elder brother and a mourner.
