A close relative said in an emotional service that the anger expressed on social media following Lufuno's death should prompt schools, parents, and the government to take action against bullying.
“How long will we be creating hashtags like ‘justice for so and so,' then waking up the next day with a new hashtag? More action is needed to meet our needs. We need solutions from authorities and politicians, as well as collaboration between teachers and parents in instilling good morals in children.”
Lufuno's brother Kenneth Mavhunga paid tribute to his sister, saying the family has been overwhelmed by the country's outpouring of love and support during this tough period.
“We got a lot of help from people we didn't meet. We received phone calls from people we had never heard of before. Lufuno was not just our sister and daughter, but she also seemed to be a part of the nation and everyone who was supporting us.”
These were Lufuno Mavhunga's last words before she died which shaked the internet;
“Please accept my apologies for offending you; whatever I did to you shouldn't have made you humiliate me and make me a laughingstock in public.
I don't think I'll be able to sit in class and learn because people will mock and laugh at me. I pray that God blesses you and that you pick up where I left off.
I hope you excel in life and achieve your goals for the sake of my mother. My soul is not at rest; those who felt they knew better than me sent it to an early grave. Please don't throw away my tears. "I hope you're happy now that I'm gone."
