Masibambisane Group was formed in September 2016 in Cato Manor, an informal settlement in Durban, by iThemba Lethu. They started a small business within the group selling viennas and cakes. Initially they were meeting in the home of one of the member’s, but the yard was too small. In October 2017, the group decided to buy a cabin and started using it as there meeting place in November. The cabin is a big asset to the group as they now can get sewing machines and use it as a place to provide sewing services so that it can generate more income and be used to start other small businesses.
It is with great sadness that we all heard of the passing of Mama Winnie Madikizela Mandela. She was an icon of the struggle against apartheid and a champion of women's rights. She will be remembered for her courage and the sacrifices she made for a free South Africa and is an inspiration to. Wathint’ Abafazi, Wathint’ Imbokodo!
Hamba kahle Mama.
