Meet our lux­ury hol­i­day win­ner

CityPress - - News -

City Press reader Yvonne Mat­sila is the lucky win­ner of the lux­ury, week-long, spon­sored hol­i­day to Botswana. The com­pe­ti­tion sup­ported the re­lease of the film A United King­dom, which tells the true story of the love af­fair be­tween Prince Seretse Khama of Botswana and Ruth Wil­liams, a Bri­tish mid­dle class of­fice worker, in the mid20th cen­tury.

Mat­sila is a his­tory teacher, so the tra­jec­tory of their ro­mance and tri­umph over colo­nial­ism de­spite fierce op­po­si­tion is one she has fol­lowed “with in­ter­est”.

Mat­sila teaches at Forte High School in Dob­sonville in Soweto and is a head of de­part­ment.

The prize, which in­cludes re­turn flights for two and seven nights in three top-notch tented camps in the Oka­vango Delta, is val­ued at R180 000.

“City Press has made my fes­tive sea­son,” said an ex­cited Mat­sila when we called to let her know she had won. She will be tak­ing her hus­band, Ish­mail, with her on sa­fari.


HAPPY Yvonne Mat­sila, a teacher at Forte High School, has won the City Pressspon­sored trip to Botswana
