Cel­e­brat­ing women

Sunday World - - Special Project - Idols

JUST be­cause some­one’s name is men­tioned for an event, it doesn’t mean they are part of it.

Take Zoleka Man­dela and the SHE Forum, for in­stance.

The in­vite to the event, held at the Protea Ho­tel Fire & Ice! Mel­rose Arch last week, read: Zoleka Man­dela joins the SHE Forum in com­mem­o­ra­tion of Women’s Month and em­pow­er­ing un­der­priv­i­leged women.”

But the girl ar­rived two hours late in the bright­est of out­fits ever, with hair to match.

If she was not an­nounced, Shwa would have mis­taken her for an

con­tes­tant in the mak­ing. But on the real, the out­fit was great, just for the wrong oc­ca­sion.

She walked in with a fine brother who turned some go­gos’ heads.

The brief was that she would share her life ex­pe­ri­ences, but that didn’t hap­pen ei­ther. Other ran­dom women spoke... Yawn!

Any­hoo, Shwa is not a fan of th­ese Women s Day cel­e­bra­tions, which come once like a damn leap year.

So, Shwa called it a day and bounced.

Af­ter all, Women s Day is ev­ery day.
