A relative of Rabalao, who wished to remain anonymous, expressed gratitude that the case has been moved to a high court.

The relative stated, “It is one prayer answered for us. This is what we wanted. We feel the state is treating the case seriously. This is what the detective wanted and made a motivation for. He took this case very seriously.”

The relative also mentioned that the family finds solace in the fact that the accused has been in custody for the past seven months and is not fighting for bail. The family continues to mourn Rabalao’s loss and experiences deep pain.

Mpisi and Rabalao have a three-year-old son together. Mpisi’s arrest came as a shock to his thousands of social media followers. Following Rabalao’s death, he created a tribute video honouring the mother of his child, depicting a happy family.
