Lara Kruger Career as a radio Dj
Lara Kruger did not study radio and says its God given talent since she is a speaker at heart and her calling has always been in entertainment.
She did reviews of Mzansi Magic’s ‘Our Perfect Wedding’ on her social media and it took you tube with a storm. This landed her a job at Motsweding FM where she presents the Saturday night good time show on Motsweding FM from 9pm until 12pm.
Lara Kruger Transgender (LGBTI) – Lara Kruger Gender
She was born a male but identifies as a female. She says that when she was growing up her family knew she was different and they supported her and loved her.
She told TimesLIVE she had always felt feminine but only fully embraced it while studying cosmetology in college in Pretoria.
“I identify as a woman from a social level. I live my life like a woman on a day-to-day basis. But in terms of my ID, my driver’s licence and matric certificate and all those documentations of life, unfortunately they do still say male because the process [of gender transformation] in our country is not as easy as one may think it is.”
She says that she lives her life as a woman although she do have a penis which doesn’t completely bother her.
Lara Kruger Depression, Death and Funeral
In the message posted to her Facebook page on December 15 2017, the Motsweding FM DJ spoke about being depressed, death and even her funeral. She was hospitalised on December 18, released three days later, only to be readmitted after Christmas. It was confirmed she died on Wednesday morning.
In the days leading up to her death, Kruger was angry and spoke out about it on social media.
“I cannot explain to you how much I HATE Mafikeng. I don’t even see myself coming back here. I came here to collect a depression and death ticket. I have never been this sick. I came here 2016 and it has not been worth it. Not even for a second. I am not going to be a victim to people who have been territorial and who where masks everytime they see me and dish me with crocodile smiles. It surely feels like I have taken 10 steps back in my life. One thing is for sure. Fa!!!! Ga ke boele. Ke sharp shem. Today I am going home to love, care and peace of mind. Don’t stay in a situation that compromises you well being. I stayed for way too long. With my condition right now I may die and if I do… Wear white at my funeral and please be advised it will be a 3 hour ceremony. Sweet & short. We should death it’s a way to connecting with God.”
