The local artist Babes’ Wodumo’s family have expressed their gratitude to the South African people, law enforcement and medical staff for their support on Tuesday.
Expected to start at 10:00, Babes’ family only arrived at 11:00 and the briefing started shortly thereafter.
Babes was not present at the press briefing, instead her mother and father addressed the public.

According to her father, Reverend Welcome Simelane, the matter has been formally reported at the Westville police department.
He also added that Babes will continue working in the entertainment industry, and urged South Africans to support victims of domestic abuse and to not pass judgement.
The family would not take any questions from the media.
