 NOLUTHANDO MEJE (Actress)


What’s your gogo’s name and how old is she?

I call my granny Ma but her real name is Eunice Nani and she’s 70 years old.

 

What’s the best meal she’s prepared for you?

She loves cooking vegetables. Everything she makes has vegetables! I love her traditional food – her amanqina (trotters) are the best.

 

The best memory you have of her?

I remember walking past some shops with my granny and saw a dress that I really liked in one of the windows. She went and told my mom about it and my mom surprised me and bought the dress for me.

 

My message to grandparents all over the world

Grandparents always take the role of parents and always spoil us. Let’s love and respect our grannies because they make us who we are today.

What’s your gogo’s name and how old is she?

We call her Gog’Ndindi and she doesn’t look a day over 21!

 What’s the best meal she’s ever prepared for you?

Everything that my granny cooks is amazing. Her samp and pilchard combo is the best. I also love how she makes cow knuckles during the winter season.

 The best memory you have of her?

When I elected as SRC president at South Western College. She gave me an amazing talk about not forgetting where I come from. She told me she’d always support my dreams, that being made SRC president wasn’t the greatest achievement on earth and that I should never stop dreaming bigger. 

 My message to gogos all over the world

Granny’s are the engine in every family. They help to raise grandchildren and they have so much wisdom. Grannies, continue being great and I wish you a long fruitful life.
