More than 500 guests attended the Sibaya Community Trust gala dinner, held at Sun Park in Durban’s Sibaya Casino, on Friday.

Trustees of social philanthropy group the Sibaya Community Trust – namely Vivian Reddy, Judge Vuka Tshabalala and its chairperson, Tristan Kaatze – hosted the event to celebrate R150 million raised by the trust for 80 welfare organisations in KwaZulu-Natal.

The dinner was attended by beneficiaries of the charity, as well as by Zulu King Goodwill Zwelithini; provincial social development MEC Weziwe Thusi; Noma Gigaba, wife of Finance Minister Malusi Gigaba; and Miss SA Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters.

King Zwelithini gave the keynote address and told guests he was proud of the work that Reddy had done within KwaZulu-Natal communities.

The MC for the night was actress, storyteller and poet Gcina Mhlophe, who was dressed in a fetching traditional outfit.

Ever the entertainer, she kept the audience in stitches all night.

Mhlophe told City Press how much she enjoyed MCing, adding that 90% of her income was derived from corporate gigs.

“I love MCing because you get to interact with the crowd,” she said.
