Gugu was found lying in a pool of blood near her home on the night of Sunday 2nd September. She had been stabbed in the chest.

LGBT rights activist, Thabiso Kgowe Mogapi who is also the director of Action for Social Justice International, a human rights organization in the province, said that he strongly believes that her death is hate-crime related, as nothing was taken from her.

Two suspects have been arrested, but one was released.
