Lara Kruger was being treated for depression in hospital

The late Motsweding FM DJ Lara Kruger was hospitalised twice in the space of one week for depression in the days leading up to her death.

Her manager‚ Boipelo Ditshego‚ said she was hospitalised on December 18 and discharged three days later.

“Everybody thought she was getting better. After she was discharged the first time‚ we all thought she was on her way to recovery. But she wasn’t and we had to cancel all of her gigs and radio slots because we did not know how long she would be in hospital.”

On one of her Facebook posts Kruger spoke about being depressed and even spoke about her funeral.
