Katam says her body had no physical injuries though a probe has been launched to establish the cause of her death.

“We are equally concerned and we want to know whether there was anyone seen around the place at that time and whether she had confrontations with anyone,” Katam said.

You are my Ninja;”she would always tell me.

Her passing has hit us all HARD!

I can literally still hear her having a go at Cess on the Jam …… Her laugh was so infectious she would leave half the office in stitches by simply laughing!

Grenyo; My Ninja, we are not too far behind you! I will miss you! When you get to Heaven; Put in a good word for us all! #GonetooSoon!”
