Kids need their fathers

Pretoria News - - NEWS -

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.
