Move! 7/2/2020

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.

it needs to stop

TSHEGOFATSO Pule, Naledi Phangindawo, Emaan Solomons, Bandile Skosana, Sibongiseni Gabada, Sibahle Sowazi, Alexia Nyamadzawo and the list goes on. These women and children all have one thing in common – they are dead. They were killed by their loved ones, by strangers and by people who should have protected them. And they’re the ones we know about. Every year it seems we start a new list of gender-based violence victims. People who start a revolution they did not sign up to be part of. People who should today be alive and living their best lives. Tshegofatso and Sibahle, for example, should be welcoming their newborn babies into the world, having sleepless nights and making up lullabies. Instead, they’re names in a long list of women and children who are now statistics. It needs to…

STOP KILLING WOMEN I have read with utter disgust, anger and disappointment the story of the murder of Tshegofatso Pule, a pregnant woman whose body was found hanging with stab wounds in Roodepoort. It boggles the mind who in his right state of mind can perform such an evil act. Her story is one of the many horrible incidents engulfing our society, where femicide and gender-based violence have become the order of the day. Although these stories are published daily, it appears that this horrific and unacceptable behaviour continues to rear its ugly head. According to Women in Action website, the gender nature of domestic violence has unfortunately seen an increase in the number of women being murdered by their intimate male partners. ‘DOMESTIC VIOLENCE HAS UNFORTUNATELY SEEN AN INCREASE’ It is estimated that…

saving for year end

NAME: Vukuzenzele Stokvel LOCATION: Gugulethu, Cape Town MEMBERS: 18 MONTHLY CONTRIBUTION: R200 MEETINGS: Monthly FORMED: 2010 FORMATION The Vukuzenzele Stokvel was formed 10 years ago and is made up of 18 women who stay in the same area. Some members knew each other from church. They started the stokvel with a common goal: to save for their end-of-the-year shopping, including Christmas clothes for their kids as well as for their groceries. MEETINGS Members meet on the first Saturday of every month where they each contribute R200. The women use a rotating schedule so that each person gets a turn to host and there’s no pressure to cater for the get-together. The meeting starts with a prayer session where they read from the Bible. They then pray together before moving on to stokvel business. MONEY MATTERS Monthly contributions are given to the group’s appointed bookkeeper…

dear parents ,...

THE closing of schools brought daily routines to an abrupt end for millions of kids – gone was the camaraderie of the classroom, the thrill of sports matches, the excitement of social events, the rush of winning an award. For parents, it was a double shock: not only were their children facing uncertainty but the onus of their education suddenly fell on their shoulders. Many Grade 7 and matric students may be heading back to class now, but for the in-between grades, school is still weeks away. As the cloud of Covid-19 continues to hang over everything, many teachers across the country have been writing letters of encouragement to parents. Here are three of them. GILLIAN TITUS Teacher at Orel Private Academy, Kimberley, Northern Cape We know that when you close your eyes for a second, the…

stronger and empowered

JUST a year ago she was a newlywed, a new mother and was on top of the world career-wise. Then one day, her whole world changed. Kayise Ngqula (28) went from being a newlywed with a baby to being a widow after her husband tragically died in a car crash. It’s been a year since the death of her Zimbabwean husband, Farai Sibanda, and Kayise is still getting used to life without him. She’s now getting back on screen to try to embrace the life she has now. She’s joined the cast of Housekeepers season 2, exploring a new side of herself in the industry. STRENGTH TO MOVE ON It hasn’t been easy finding the strength to move forward after losing her husband and the father of her one-year-old son, Tinashe. “That was painful. Shuuu!…
