Move! 6/18/2020

Move! Is a magazine for the South African woman who wants to read about issues she can identify with. She wants to shop affordably, test recipes with ordinary ingredients and feel comfortable in asking questions. The Move! woman is determined to improve her living standard – her biggest challenge has always been limited access to relevant information. The magazine’s approach is therefore simple and practical. Most of the readers are cash-strapped, single and dependent on public transport. For the Move! woman it is important to be successful, but she does not always have the confidence to realise this ideal. Move! aims to advise, inspire and entertain her. It wants to befriend readers and form a bond characterised by trust and loyalty.

now it’s up to you

THE country has just moved to level 3 of lockdown. Many South Africans have gone back to their jobs, some have sent their children back to school and life is going back to normal – except it isn’t. We are still in the midst of a pandemic, and the numbers are scary. When the president said it is now up to us, he was calling on all South Africans to take charge of their health. We can’t let our guards down. Just because the economy is open, it does not mean it’s now a free-for-all. Now is the time to take responsibility. Keep making sure you don’t go outside unnecessarily, that you observe the rules when you go back to church and only shop when you need to. It is up to you to make…

saving for big ceremonies

NAME: Great Expectations Social Club LOCATION: Rustenburg CONTRIBUTION: R200 MEETINGS: Monthly FORMED: 2009 THE BEGINNING The Great Expectations Social Club is made up of 13 women who got together to save for family burials. Once the club was up and running, they decided to buy equipment considered essential for catering for funerals and other big ceremonies held by families. They bought gas stoves, chairs, tables and other items that would mean they would not have to hire goods for events. MEETINGS AND MONEY They meet on the first Sunday of every month, where they each contribute R200 into the club’s bank account. Deposit slips are then shared with all members and filed for record purposes. Members take turns hosting the monthly meeting. However, the ladies all agreed that no one is obliged to serve refreshments when they host. Some members really love spoiling…

hair for it!

WHILE salons in South Africa remain closed to curb the spread of the killer coronavirus, people have been tearing their hair out wondering what to do with their crowns. Some have taken matters into their own hands, trimming their relaxed ends, braiding their hair or shaving it off completely. In Kenya, where salons can operate under strict conditions, hairdresser Sharon Refa has erected a makeshift shop beside a busy road in the township of Kibera, Nairobi. Sharon’s salon recently came under the spotlight when she started braiding children’s hair in a ’do dubbed the coronavirus hairstyle. The hairdo has taken the country by storm because of its similarity to the Covid-19’s crown of club-shaped spikes. The coronavirus has killed more than 50 people in the east African country with more than 1 000 confirmed infections,…

going global

SHE whirls into the principal’s office in expensive heels, ready to mow down anyone who stands in her way. Like a mama bear protecting her young, she fights anyone who gets in the way of her daughter’s happiness, whether it be a teacher or a student. She uses her sharp wit and family money to make sure things go her way. Xolile Tshabalala plays Fikile’s mother in the new Netflix original series, Blood & Water. It seems like the perfect role as she’s played a villain mother before. She was the popular Julia Motene in Generations for a few years. She’s always drawn to motherhood roles, she says. “I do not have children of my own, and it is no secret that I have had a miscarriage in the past,” she says. “But I seem to be…

talk of the town

SHE’S gone international: her new Netflix series is No.1 in many countries and her name is now on everyone’s lips. But she’s not new to the spotlight. Amamkele Qamata shot to fame when Gomora hit local TV screens a few months ago. She’s always loved attention, she tells us. Because when most girls her age were happy to play dress up with their dolls, she enjoyed playing dress up onstage. As a child, Ama loved the spotlight and when she received astanding ovation as Snow White in a school play, she knew she wanted to be a star. Not too long ago very few people had heard of her but since Gomora took the country by storm, the actress has become the talk of the town. Ama, who plays Buhle in the hit Mzansi Magic…
