It’s still Mothers month and to celebrate it, Mzansi’s moms talk to us about their experiences with motherhood.
MODEL, LERATO MOLOI (MOM OF TWO)
The unconditional love God has for me is reflected through my kids, and knowing that they see me as the most wonderful human being alive, regardless of my own perceptions of myself. Nothing compares to it.
ACTRESS AND MUSICIAN, LETOYA MANGEZI (MOM OF THREE)
As a working mom, I’m not always able to be around. I miss out on those moments when they fall and all they really need is their mom. I miss out on getting them ready for school and I sometimes miss out on bath time. One thing I never miss out on, unless I’m out of town, is our bed time routine that involves a story or two, sometimes even singing together, a prayer and hugs and kisses.
ZABALAZA ACTRESS, MANAKA RANAKA (MOM OF TWO)
Being a mom is the most amazing thing for me. I love the fact that I know for sure that I have people who will always be by my side. I have long-term friends who love me unconditionally.
ACTRESS, TV DIRECTOR AND FASHION ENTREPRENEUR, STHANDIWE KGOROGE (MOM OF THREE)
My promise to my kids is that I will always do everything that I can to provide them with the best. I love them unconditionally and I will always be there for them. I’m their number one fan!
ARTIST, LEBO MASHILE (MOTHER OF ONE)
Being a mother has changed my approach to spirituality, it has changed the way I look at things and my work, and it has also made my world a bit smaller as it’s taken a lot of people out of my life. Personally and spiritually, my son is inspiring me to take my life to a whole other level because I know that I want to raise a black man who isn’t afraid of the world and his dreams.
COMEDIAN, TUMI MORAKE (MOM OF THREE)
I love having little people get so excited to see me when I come home. I have learnt that there are no professionals when it comes to parenting, just people who’ve found their vibe with their kids. I trust myself more and I forgive myself more.
BONA WISHES YOU A HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY
