In her Tweets, Linda Mtoba said:

“My dad not coming or even calling for my birthday. I waited all day for him and ran to the phone inside when it rang. My (mom,) family had thrown me a party. Still, all I wanted was [for] him to come or at least care enough to call. He didn’t. Maybe I was 4,”

Linda, who celebrates her birthday on November 11, says her mother became a single mother at an early age.

“My mom was only 23 having to deal with such, hectic. My mom was only 23 having to deal with such, hectic. Not only did he break her heart but he did it to me too. And she was also just a baby nkosi yam.”
