Norma Mngoma has had a tough year and unfortunately, a lot of it has played out in the public's eye.
Wednesday saw Malusi Gigaba's ex-wife launched the Norma Mngoma Foundation. Mngoma proudly announced her new endeavour on social media, commenting that:
"Today I’m introducing a seed that has evolved from the ground supported by the sun which is my Noma Mngoma Foundation."
This foundation will target the development of South African youths and building the nation's leaders:
"Not only I am passionate about the growth of a young girl and boy but as NMF we look into the future of rebuilding, mentoring, coaching our young people into becoming entrepreneurial-minded, evolving from young creative and innovative thinkers to game-changers."
The foundation will be partnering with other companies which hold a common vision to support entrepreneurs:
"NMF in partnership with like-minded companies namely BCMA @bmcas_summit our goal is to groom young people to be business-minded, our aim to build more entrepreneurs in the Southern Continent."
Mngoma, naturally, is immensely excited to begin this journey, concluding to say that:
"I look forward to all of the exciting projects I intend to embark on with the foundation and to contribute in my own way to the development of communities, schools and to the growth of people it will work with."
Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that the latest dramatic episode between the erstwhile finance minister Malusi Gigaba and his wife, Norma, has plunged the already frail health of Gigaba’s mother, Nomthandazo, into disarray.
In the latest of what is turning out to be a soap opera in the Gigaba household, the former minister opened a charge of malicious damage to property against his wife of close to six years.
Inevitably, Nomthandazo said this has led to her already weak health deteriorating even more.
“No mother is willing to see her son and his wife fighting, especially in public. However, it is not unusual that couples would sometimes argue over certain things, but doing it in public often leads to unforeseen circumstances,” said the elderly woman.
She said she was confident the pair would be able to rekindle their love and put the chaotic episode behind them.
