In our May issue, Lady D shared that she stumblesd across radio in the 70s while working as a professional, where she specialised in family planning. She shared in part: “Becaause family planning was still taboo back then, we dealt with all kinds of myths. These included one that said the contraceptive injection made women prronsicuous.”

She then became a regular contributor on Ukhozi FM (then Radio Bantu), where she would speak as Sister Mildred. : I got very involved with my worrk. On Ukhozi, I insisted that listeners be allowed to call in and ask questions. I also wrote for BONA at some point, giving health advice from the late 70s until I moved to radio in the early 90s. I gave answers to as many people as possible.
