WHAT a fabulous early Christmas gift: waking up to a news alert that Zozi Tunzi, our gorgeous Miss South Africa, had been crowned Miss Universe. And this in a week in which we were plunged back into darkness courtesy of Eishkom, South African Airways was once again being bailed out to the tune of millions – and Jacob Zuma was apparently in a Cuban hospital being treated for “complications related to poisoning” and was too ill to testify before the Zondo commission! So good news was very much needed – and Zozi delivered it, beating the best of the beautiful bunch to take the glittering crown. On page 10 we speak to family and friends about this delightful young woman, who’ll be flying the SA flag high in New York next year during…

WORDS OF WISDOM OUR darling grandpa, affectionately known as Zaida Joe, passed away recently, a mere two months after turning 100. His zest for life, contagious positivity and healthy outlook on life secured his century milestone. He always used to give the best advice to everyone who needed it. 1. Treat everyone with respect – it costs nothing. 2. When you talk to someone on the phone, smile. The person on the other end of the line will feel it. 3. The greatest thing on earth is oxygen. So when you wake up in the morning, breathe – it’s free. 4. Make sure to have lots of colour on your plate. 5. Make sure to drink carrot juice every day. It’s the elixir for the eyes. 6. Never stop learning. Keep up with change. Read, read and read…

toxic bullying

I've worked at numerous private schools, and each time I’ve encountered the worst kind of bullying: teachers bullying other teachers, teachers bullying young children because they don’t like their parents or, the worst, the executive head of the school bullying you because he doesn’t like you. I've personally been bullied by a receptionist to the point where she got physical with me. When I complained I was told I was unfit for work. No wonder so many people suffer from depression. Who do we turn to if our bosses don’t want to help? Seems nowadays you have to bully to get to the top. It’s a sad world we live and work in. I’m sure I’m not the only teacher who feels this way or who’s been in this position. There must be hope for…

in brief

When your son manages to persuade his mom to buy YOU magazine because it has Siya Kolisi and the Springboks on the cover . . . SEAN MILLIGAN, YOU FACEBOOK The 5 December issue of YOU was packed with interesting articles, recipes for home-baked goods and extra blockbusters. I particularly enjoyed the article about Melinda Gates, but the cherry on the cake was the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards. Thank you for keeping us up to date with all the news. Wishing you all a wonderful, restful break. JOEY FARRELL, EMAIL Thank you so much for the amazing and hilarious photographs of the animals in the wild (YOU, 5 December). I just adore Harry Walker’s “Oh My!” Please keep up the wonderful work YOU produces. ROSE GRIMANIS, HERMANUS I shed a tear and hang my head in…

zozi, you did it!

THE tension in the arena was almost too much to endure. Standing on stage, Zozibini “Zozi” Tunzi looked as if she didn’t even dare breathe as she waited for the big announcement. Then in just seven words her life was irrevocably changed. “The new Miss Universe is . . . South Africa,” presenter Steve Harvey boomed. And with that, pandemonium erupted in the Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta in the American state of Georgia. As an astonished Zozi (26) tried to absorb the news, her shiny new crown gleaming on her head, the cameras panned to her delighted parents, Lungisa and Philiswa, and elder sister, Yanga (30), who were all dressed in traditional attire and cheering her on with a bright and unmissable South African flag. Meanwhile thousands of kilometres away her two…

life will never be the same

‘WE DON’T want her to be known as that victim at the post office – there’s so much more to her than that.” These are the words of Nomangwane Mrwetyana, the grieving mother of the young woman who became the unwitting face of the scourge of gender-based violence in South Africa. But to Nomangwane and her family, Uyinene wasn’t the raped and slain University of Cape Town (UCT) student whose brutal death in August triggered countrywide protests and made headlines around the world. To them she was Nene, Uyi Uyi – the sparkling girl who could light up a room with her megawatt smile. Now her mom, dad Mabhele, a civil engineer, and brother Esona (21) are preparing for their first Christmas without their little girl and baby sister. “You feel the void in so…
