Gillian Rennie, one of our writing & editing lecturers, along with Jenny Gordon, a photojourn lecturer, did a story on MaMbeki which published in the Fairlady Magazine, December 2005. The article also won Gillian the Mondi award for Profile Writing in 2006.
We thought it appropriate to share the article with everyone as a tribute to MaMbeki. Epainette Mbeki (MaMbeki) was the mother of former South African President, Thabo Mbeki and passed away in East London on 7 June 2014. The funeral was held on 14 June in Dutywa in the Eastern Cape.
