Move! 7/16/2020

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.

check on the strong

WE all have that one friend, that cousin, that sister or aunt who everyone leans on. The one you tell the bad news to first so she or he can pass it on to the rest of the family. The one who everyone calls in their time of need, who’s expected to have all the answers. She gives the best advice, she’s always available with a kind word and is seen as indestructible. These people are the strong ones, who carry the rest of the world on their shoulders. But no one is that strong. Even the toughest friends and family members need someone every once in a while. So, please, take time out and check on your strong friends. They go through more than we know and are so used to being the…

VOLUNTEER YOUR SERVICES In this world where people are known for putting their interests first, let me salute the young people of Bushbuckridge in the greater Manyeleti area for their selfless efforts. Led by Fumani Mnisi, they’ve taken the initiative to fix the pothole-infested road from Islington to Manyeleti Game Reserve. They fund the project themselves and through donations from road users. They buy bags of cement and sand then fix the road one pothole at a time. It brings a smile to my face to know they’re contributing to the society they want to see. Very often, people just watch their ‘MAY WE ENSURE WE DON’T WHINE ABOUT LACK OF SERVICES’ WOMEN ARE BEING SUFFOCATED Gender-based violence (GBV) has been declared a pandemic by President Cyril Ramaphosa. Men have declared war on women. But what causes…

stokvel corner

ABIDE BY THE STOKVEL RULES Siyakhana Savings would like to advise people to join a savings club, as they realised that when it comes to saving for big purchases – like cars, furniture or to simply pay off children’s school fees – it’s easier when you save together rather than on your own. They add that for anyone thinking of joining a stokvel, they should be honest and expect honesty from the get-go about group expectations and any financial constrains they may have. If you want your stokvel to be featured in Move!, send us your contact details and a picture of your stokvel members to:…

my two little miracles

SHE’S been praying and crying for years. All she wanted was a chance to have a child, to have a baby to cuddle and hold and watch him or her grow up. But it seemed like it wasn’t going to happen. Until now. Sphelele Mzimela (30) tried for years to get pregnant, but she was too scared to go to the doctor to find out why it wasn’t happening. “I was scared of finding out that maybe I will forever struggle to have babies or something.” And when she stopped trying, her prayers were answered. “It’s not just one, you know,” she tells us softly. “I am having twins.” THE MOMENT OF TRUTH When she started feeling offish, she didn’t suspect anything. “I took so many pregnancy tests, yet I was still in such disbelief. When…
