Family Reunion: Promoting the Book

It was an honour and a previlige to present my book (“Blacks Only: Its Okay to be Black) to 4 generations of the Mashego clan (mainly spread across 4 provinces: mpumalanga, Limpopo, northwest, and Gauteng) at the annual family reunion. A big “thank you” to those that supported the project by purchasing copies of the book. Here are some of the pics. #family #reunion #blacksonly #itsokaytobeblack #mindsetchangeIMG-20151221-WA0018IMG-20151221-WA0016.jpgIMG-20151221-WA0017.jpg

Apartheid Museum Tour

Apartheid Museum, located next to Gold Reef Theme Park, is the place to be – a thought-provoking tour indeed. South African history nicely packaged and and showing us where we come from as a nation. Ours is to learn from this very past of ours so we do not repeat the same mistakes our forefathers/parents committed. #apartheid museum #johannesburg

 

Case Study: Mangwinya & Cookies Business

IMG_20151206_155628.jpg

Ms Mosetlha from Dobsonvile, sells cookies and fat cakes in Rosebank, not far from the Rosebank Mall. She wakes up at 2am daily to prepare these cookies & magwinya. She catches a taxi from Dobsonvillle to Rosebank in the early hours of the morning. By 07h30 am. all her buckets are empty. She then catches a taxi back home. She’ll told me she is the bread winner. She could have chosen to join the “I am unemployed” club and plead for grants from our governnent. Instead, she took ownsership of her life, refused to be a charity case, and refused to “play” victim. She denies herself some sleep, uses what she has (hands, flour & baking skills) to provide for her family. I’m not a fan of fat cakes but I make sure I buy some to support this act of bravery. If more South Africans can adopt this attitude, poverty will be a thing of the past. #small business #usewhatyouhave #hardworkpays
