Their parents were Patricia Nombuyiselo and father, Robert Noah, who descended from Swiss heritage.

The siblings had a remotely difficult childhood. Most of their years went away in poverty and a need to make ends meet. The boys felt neglected and segregated.

His actions did not prove to be kind, eventually leading to mental and physical damage in the family.

Sources prove that those were the scariest days of their lives.

Patricia later moved on to marry Sfiso Khoza.

Abusive stepfather shot his mother 

It was when Andrew and Isaac called Trevor saying that his stepfather had shot his mother, Patricia. She was shot on the back of her head and out her nose.

Miraculously, the bullet went through, missing her brain and arteries. Patricia survived the barbaric attack with no fatalities to her internal organs. 

His stepfather was convicted of attempted murder. However, he was sentenced only to probation during that time.

While their mother was healing, she explained to her children, who were filled with anger. 

Trevor explained in an interview that his mother has asked him to forgive him. 

Trevor's mom explains that he is a victim in his own way. His world makes him perceive masculinity in the wrong way. 

His mother also explains that hatred will only hurt herself, and there is no need for it. 

Andrew and his brothers took a great deal to understand how forgiving, wise, and compassionate their mother is.
