POLOKWANE-Musician Lehlogonolo “Shebeshxt” Chauke will be able to attend the funeral of his nine-year-old daughter, Onthatile, on Saturday, thanks to special arrangements made with the hospital where he is currently being treated. This tragic event follows a fatal car accident in Limpopo on Saturday night that claimed the life of his daughter.

Family spokesperson and Shebeshxt’s lawyer, Lot Ramusi, confirmed the arrangements to the media. The family requested Shebeshxt’s medical team to release him from the hospital temporarily so that he can attend the funeral. He will return to the hospital for continued treatment after the ceremony.

Shebeshxt, who survived the car accident, is no longer in critical care and has been moved out of the intensive care unit. Ramusi provided an update on the musician’s condition, stating, “He is out of the ICU and has a moonboot on his leg. Shebeshxt is recovering quite well. He can talk, and he can actually even stand up. His focus is just on his recovery.”

The accident occurred as Shebeshxt was traveling to his girlfriend’s home to drop her and his daughter off before heading to an ANC Siyanqoba rally celebration concert in Lebowakgomo. His vehicle collided with a truck during the journey.

Ramusi mentioned that the family is coordinating with the hospital to ensure Shebeshxt can attend the funeral. “We are going to make arrangements with the hospital for them to take him there and bring him back after the funeral,” he said.

It remains unclear whether the funeral will be private or public, given the outpouring of public support from Shebeshxt’s fans. The family has not disclosed specific details about the service.

In addition to the family arrangements, the police have reached out to Shebeshxt as part of their investigation into the accident. They have requested a J88 form, which details the extent of his injuries, to aid in their investigation of the truck driver involved in the collision. However, Ramusi emphasized that the police are not investigating Shebeshxt for his daughter’s passing. “He will only give them that statement next week after the funeral,” Ramusi added.

The tragic loss of Onthatile has left the family and the public in mourning, and the arrangements for Shebeshxt to attend her funeral provide some solace during this difficult time.
