Thabisile Khumalo from River Valley
Mom Thabisile is affectionately called maKhumalo and she calls every one abantwana, which shows that she is a mother figure!
In her department, most of the time she stays behind cleaning the areas and always says” uyazi abantwana laba, ba shiye yonke into Nyiza ba cleanela nyizo thini.”
Thabisile shares a lot about her kids, which shows they are always in her thoughts and many times we listen to her stories about her kids.
One day I was touched when we were discussing her kids’ spiritual wellbeing. A mother who is not only concerned about what her kids eat and wear but also concerned about their growth spiritually.
Virginia Monageng from Royal Elephant
Virginia was selected because she is selfless and she treats everyone with love and respect. She is a true leader and a mum of many. She is the one person that you can really count on when you really need a mum. She is an inspiration to us all!
Elizabeth Sello from Palazzo
Elizabeth has a warm personality, very caring and gives great advice. Elizabeth is a mother of one and she never stops talking about her daughter and how she’s excelling in school.
Kirsty Maxwell from Winelands High Tea Room
Kirsty is Winelands High Tea choice for Mum of the Year. She is a mother to one little boy, and has been raising him on her own since birth. She is doing an amazing job and is also so true to our therapists, whenever they are in need she is always there to wipe away their tears.
Adelaide Sefike from the Pivot
Adelaide is originally from Mpumalanga. She is a very hardworking person and always goes the extra mile. She adores her child, even after being away from her for a long time. She always talks about her daughter and even cries when she thinks about her. This shows that she is a caring mom regardless of the fact that she is far away from her daughter.
Ntombi Mdaki from Birchwood
We think Ntombi deserves to be Mum of the Year because she is a single mum of 5 and last year she was diagnosed with a breast cancer, which she is in remission from.
When she was ill she would always cry saying that she does not want to die and leave her kids alone. She is a very strong woman and was never absent at work during her trying time of fighting cancer.
We asked her to take unpaid leave to stay at home so that she can recover fully after her operation, but she refused and said.  “If I stay at home what will my children live on? They will suffer without my salary. She is working very hard for her children to be better in life one day.
Gloria Sitokisi from Winelands
Gloria is Winelands choice for Mum of the Year. She is a single mother of 5 children and also raises her late sisters children all on her own. She is a fantastic mother and is well deserving of this award. She is so true to Winelands and always goes the extra mile.
Andiswa Sikhumba from Wild Coast Boutique Spa
Andiswa was chosen as she take care of her daughter Amahle (4 yrs). She makes sure her child go to the school as she never have the chance to go, so that she will have a good education.
