EFF trea­surer favours cur­ries in Dur­ban visit

Daily News - - NEWS - SE-ANNE RALL

KWAZULU-NATAL’s Leigh-Ann Mathys grew up shar­ing her time be­tween the prov­ince’s two ma­jor cities and is mak­ing a name for her­self as the EFF’s trea­surer.

Mathys was in Dur­ban last week to help plan the party’s fourth an­niver­sary cel­e­bra­tions at Cur­ries Foun­tain at the week­end.

Mathys tweeted: “eThek­wini means my favourite type of food – In­dian! Gonna eat lots of it all week … no judg­ing please … not all curry is Gupta” (sic). With more than 100 shares, the

Daily News caught up with Mathys to find out if she had squeezed in some au­then­tic Dur­ban curry.

“Yep, every day since Sun­day. Un­for­tu­nately, my sched­ule has not al­lowed me to go to some of my favourite In­dian restau­rants. For­tu­nately, In­dian take­aways can be just as tasty,” said Mathys.

She said last week she went to the Bak­ing Pan, a pop­u­lar eatery in Sy­den­ham that she fre­quented dur­ing her school hol­i­days.

“This was decades ago. I go when­ever I get a chance when I am in Dur­ban. I or­dered so much dif­fer­ent food and had some of each. The bunny chow at Moyo uShaka is still yummy. I had that on Mon­day. My non-cur­ryeat­ing col­leagues were sweat­ing af­ter one mouth­ful and they or­dered mild!”Mathys said she was dis­ap­pointed on a trip to Dur­ban ear­lier this year.

“I went to Blue La­goon, only to find out my favourite take-away joint was no longer there.”
