The mother of a three-year-old girl who died allegedly at Pastor Mboro’s church on Christmas Eve has appealed to government for help with her child’s funeral costs.

Nontombi Gwam says they want to take Latoya’s body to the Eastern Cape for burial.

Gwam spoke publicly for the first time after her sickly child died while she had taken her to Mboro’s church in Katlehong on Gauteng’s Eastrand to be prayed for.

She maintains that had it not been for the negligence of the paramedics who attended to the child, her child’s life would have been spared.

Gwam says she is also concerned about the way the police are handling the matter.

“I laid a case of culpable homicide and assault against the paramedics. But so far, the female paramedic has not been arrested. I was failed by the paramedics and SAPS. The one man that tried to help me, Prophet Mboro was unfairly targeted.”
