Miss u so much already and in utter disbelief, our plans remain unchanged and I will for Lawi. Rest in peace Lulu Banda. You will always be my heart, little sister.” Tweeted Kuli Roberts.
Sharing some of her fondest memories with Lulu, the former Vuzu presenter revealed that she used to take her to the Red Cross Children’s Hospital each day so she would get hives.
“We used to wake up and take her to Red Cross Children's Hospital every day as she would get hives. I remember her being stuck in plaster after they broke both her legs in order to straight them. We chilled together for months rocking and getting em straight. She was the only one out of all those people who was always there.”
Interacting with her followers, the star spoke about the last conversation that they had which was a lighthearted one. “Last time we spoke we were laughing cause her front teeth were damaged and removed after the car accident and I kept asking her to say, "sip".
Our deepest and most sincere condolences to the family of Amanda Manku and Kuli Roberts on their losses.
