Jabba committed suicide on October 24 after a lengthy battle with depression.
Just 24hours before the funeral The South Gauteng High Court ruled that Lerato Sengadi is Jabba’s customary wife, despite his father, Robert Tsambo, claiming that she was not recognised as their makoti or his wife.
Lerato filed an urgent court application for an interdict to have the funeral stopped but that was denied.
The court found that by law Jabba and Lerato had entered into a customary union. The Tsambo family was ordered to return all of Jabba’s documents, his hard drives and the keys to his Randpark Ridge home to Lerato.
