Palesa realised that this may have been taken the wrong way and decided to clear the air. The actress said that Somizi’s mother was not ordering her or taking the baby away from her but she wanted her to go back to schoo’

“When ma said I can give the baby to them, she was not ordering me, she was not insisting or taking my baby away from me. As a caring and loving mother she was to me she meant she will take care of my baby and she loved me enough to want to see me go back to school and make a good life for myself,” she wrote.

Palesa went on to say she was allowed to fetch Bahumi at any time. She also cautioned viewers that many of the clips from the reality series are edited because of time. So, she urges viewers not to misinterpret her comments.

“Anytime any day I was allowed to fetch my baby and visit my baby hence I became part of the family. Please note most of these clips are edited out because of time. So please do not misinterpret or misunderstand the conversation. God blessed me with a beautiful and loving mother and family. May her beautiful soul rest in peace,” she continued.
