Meet our luxury holiday winner
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.
