The family of the 17-year-old girl who died after she was hit by Passion Java’s vehicle along Seke Road on Tuesday has denied reports that the deceased was pregnant.
In a statement, family spokesperson, Elizabeth Mukaro, said it was not true that the late Joyce Tandi was pregnant.
She said the family was actually disturbed by reports circulating on social media that the late Joyce was an expecting mother.
Mukaro also the family were shocked by a statement released by Java in which he said he had offered them a scholarship. Said Mukaro:
We want to put the record straight that the deceased was not pregnant.
We do not know how people came to suggest that she was pregnant.
At the same time, we were shocked by a statement released by Prophet Passion about the assistance he talked about.
His statement about the scholarship is a clear insult to the family considering that the deceased was young and he never showed himself to the family.
The body of the late Joyce was collected on Thursday and was expected to be laid to rest on Friday.
