Women share their stories

Letshego Zulu

Women from different cultures and backgrounds will come together to share their life experiences during a Women’s Day event at Den Anker restaurant, at the V&A Waterfront on Saturday August 10, from 8am to 11am.

One of six women who will share their stories is Letshego Zulu, widow of adventurer and motor racing driver Gugu Zulu, who died just before summiting Mount Kilimanjaro with the Trek 4 Mandela expedition in 2016. Her book, I Choose to Live, Life after losing Gugu, recounted the tragedy, has just been published.

Joining Ms Zulu will be: MasterChef finalist Abigail Mbalo-Mokoena, designer Tamburai Chirume, wellness blogger Maxine Schuiling, artist Lizette Chirrime Lavender Hill granny and social activist Connie Abrahams.

The event kicks off with a yoga session led by Virgin Active on the Pierhead deck, followed by breakfast at Den Anker and talks by the women. The event includes performances by the traditional women’s choir Isibane.

Tickets cost R200 and the proceeds will benefit two charities: The Justice Desk, which focuses on empowering women, and the Imbumba Foundation, which invests in education and development of the girl child.
