Kids need their fathers
AS FATHER’S Day draws near, TV and radio personality Lerato Kganyago has called on men to play a prominent role in raising their children.
Kganyago said a father’s absence from a child’s life could have a negative impact on the child.
The new host of Project Runway South Africa recently opened up on social media about a grudge she had held against her father.
In a series of tweets, Kganyago spoke about her relationship with her father and how anger strained their relationship. “I held a grudge for so long until the one time he called me after so many months and he said: ‘I’m listening to 702, they’re talking about women and infertility’. I burst into tears because at that moment I realised he cared but he didn’t know how to show me he did.
“But today I made a decision to let go and embrace my father as he is! I held on too long to what had happened in the past,” she wrote.
The former Live Amp presenter said her relationship with her father was now stronger, and that they “found our common ground” ahead of Father’s Day on Sunday.
