DRUM - - Contents -

As a young man who is in­spired by strong women, I was fas­ci­nated to see Thando Tha­bethe and DJ Zinhle on the cover of DRUM’s 31 Au­gust is­sue.

I’ve fol­lowed these two ladies’ ca­reers with in­ter­est for a num­ber of years and I’ve shared news of their rise to the top with young women in my cir­cle.

In the ar­ti­cle “I’m do­ing it my way”, DJ Zinhle draws a clear pic­ture for us that it doesn’t mat­ter how many times you stum­ble, how you stand up and con­tinue with your jour­ney is what’s im­por­tant.

Sim­i­larly the ver­sa­tile Thando Tha­bethe, in “Trail­blaz­ing Tha­booty”, seems to be ad­dicted to chal­lenges.

She’s one of the rea­sons many of us are glued to the small screen at 8pm for Gen­er­a­tions: The Legacy. She will be dearly missed when she leaves the soapie.

We can only take com­fort in know­ing that her move will cre­ate a va­cancy for some other as­pir­ing young woman out there to fill.

What an in­ter­est­ing is­sue of DRUM! I re­ally en­joyed read­ing it. MAHLATSE SEREPO, EMAIL
