- An accounting graduate has shifted her focus to an entirely different industry
- Keneilwe Ledwaba started her own construction and renovations company
- Although Ledwaba is the boss of NeiTouch, she's not afraid to get her hands dirty
Halala! 2019 really has been a year in which women are making a mark on male-dominated industries and Keneilwe Ledwaba is one of those ladies.
The young accounting graduate shared a photo of herself doing manual labour in construction on the #ImStaying Facebook page.
However, upon a closer look at her Facebook profile, Briefly.co.za learned that she not only works in construction, she owns the company.
Ledwaba is the founder of NeiTouch - construction and renovations company.
South Africans were inspired by her hustle and we took a look at some of the comments her post gathered.
Ken Scott commented:
"This lady needs to be made a shining example of in the country. One of the big construction companies needs to subcontract her so she can employ people."
George Ngwenya wrote:
"Keneilwe you are bound for glory, watch this space!"
Lynden Cotterell added:
"She's the owner of the company guys. She's just not afraid to get stuck in and do some of the dirty work herself. Much respect."
On Thursday, Briefly.co.za reported on another inspiring young woman. Sharon Mbabazi recently graduated with a degree in communication. However, the thing that stood out is her journey and how she came to fund her studies.
It was revealed that Sharon previously worked as a brick maker and this helped to pay for her tuition.
