The newspaper went on to report that Rosemary’s mother Ida was distraught and inconsolable after seeing her daughter bedridden in hospital.

Rosemary was taken ill on Saturday, February 18, then later diagnosed with a non-cancerous tumour and underwent surgery.

The tumor had caused her to bleed internally before she was rushed to hospital.

She was later flown to South Africa for further treatment on Tuesday, February 28, 2017.
