He continues. “Everyone knows Dineo is a warrior.”

Dineo previously stated that she understands the motives behind suicide. Despite the fact that she had to take drastic measures to get psychiatric care, numerous of her admirers flooded her with messages of love and encouragement.


“I completely understand souls/spirits/people that commit suicide. I get it. I get them. Because I’m trying my best to not commit suicide, my mind is so loud of late…and I’m trying my best, but it seems my best is not enough,” she shared. “My children, God. Abantwana bam.”

Soon after the posts, Kaya 959 issued a statement wishing their breakfast host well. “The Kaya 959 family is keeping Dineo in their hearts and we wish her healing. We also ask for privacy as Dineo gets through this difficult time.” the station’s Colleen Louw wrote.

Zimoja revealed that in 2022, Ranaka advised those experiencing sorrow or sadness to speak up: “Please talk to your people when you’re not okay, particularly If you’re employed and you have bosses who care. I have questioned myself whether I’m okay or I’m not okay, I’ve healed from certain pains, or I’ve not healed from certain pains… I’ve started understanding depression deeper. The opposite of depression is not happiness. So, depression, in essence, is not sadness. Depression is the lack and the loss of vitality. Vitality is your enthusiasm for life and living, your excitement about life”.
