'We're all her children now' - Celebs spend Mother's Day with Akhumzi's mom
Mother's Day can be one of the loneliest times of the year if you have recently lost a child, and so some of Akhumzi Jezile's closest celeb friends made sure his mother wasn't alone.
Terry Pheto, Mampho Brescia, Zizo Tshwete, Clement Maosa and Musa Mthombeni were among the celebs who descended on Akhumzi's family home on Sunday to have a special picnic for the star's mom.
Akhumzi was killed in a car crash two weeks before Mother's Day. He was traveling with Thobani Mseleni, Siyasanga Kobese and two others just outside of Queenstown when the accident happened. All of the people in the car died
While still in mourning, Akhumzi's mother Zoleka was surrounded by friends and family the whole day, many of them bringing her Mother's Day gifts.

Speaking to TshisaLIVE, Mampho said Akhumzi's friends decided to celebrate Ma Zoe so that she knew she was not alone and had many children looking after her.
"We are all her children now and she is our mother. We wanted to honour her, to thank her for giving us Akhumzi, and to let her know that she will never be alone."
Mampho said that Ma Zoe was surprised at all her guests arriving but was happy to have them.
"She was full of smiles and she looked like she enjoyed us being there. It was very special."
