Limbada shared Mkhwanazi's story on the Everything Musgrave Facebook group on Wednesday, and soon it made a huge difference in the 56-year-old's life.

Mkhwanazi worked 11 hours a day for the past five years at her Musgrave employers for a salary of R1500.

Although she resides on their premises, the domestic worker lives in a room with no electricity and she can only have the family's left over food and dry bread.

“There was not even Rama or something to butter my bread,” she said.

To top it off the mother of four barely ever has the time to see her family and when she ask permission to visit them, her owners would have a problem.

“I work seven days a week and hardly get to go home to my family. When I do want to go home, it becomes an issue. I only get to go home once a month, for one night only,” she said.

However, it appears the Mariannhill resident's luck has changed after Limbada's Facebook post.
