Family’s Heartbreaking Statement

Ncube’s family expressed their profound grief and shared fond memories of their beloved Percy. Describing her as a loving and devoted mother, they emphasized her involvement in the community and church.

“She was a loving and devoted mother who lived for her children, family, and friends,” stated a family member. “Percy was an active member of her church and had created a beautiful community for herself and her children. But she was cruelly taken from us due to domestic violence.”
