What do you think about…
The nation celebrated Women’s Day this week and The Rep intern Chuma Joni took to the streets of Komani to ask residents which women inspired them and why?
from Queens Drive
My mother inspires me. She is a great woman and a loving person.
She has done a lot for the family and the children growing up. I look up to her.
Johannes Nepgen from Grey Street
All the ladies inspire me, because they look after us, they cook for us, they care for us and they educate us.
So all women inspire me.
Zanele Lonzi from Komani
My mother is not welleducated but she managed to raise us up and take us to school. She took some of the underprivileged children from my village to live with her and sent them to school.
She taught us how to share. I do not mind sharing because of her.
She loved my father a lot, so she has also taught me love.
Ayakha Goniwe from Komani
My mom inspires me because she has done a lot for me though she is a single parent. She has never given up in life and she is willing to do everything.
Her sacrifices made me who I am today.
Zenande Maqungo from Whittlesea
My bishop inspires me a lot. She has been through so much. She lost her husband, in the process lost his son as well, but she never gave up on life.
