Actor Hangwani Ramakuwela has taken to social media to share some much-needed wisdom before the festive season properly kicks in. The actor, who plays Mulalo on the soapie, took to his Twitter account to share his thoughts.
Hangwani expressed that not all family members were able to contribute financially during the festive season. He went on to say that others could contribute physical labour and needed to be appreciated for that.
His tweet read:
“Some family members can’t contribute to funerals, weddings or any other family gatherings with money but they can do so with their hands. Do not undermine the uncle who doesn’t give you money but makes sure the cow is slaughtered correctly. Aunty who cleans the pots etc”
Social media users were in agreement with him and shared their thoughts. Twitter user Themba_tshepo7 said:
“thank you for that wise reminder,just like those who dig graves,you wont see their importants until the big day come.”

“True. A cousin helped with cleaning the yard”
“Well said money is not everything”
“Well said.there is saying says in Zulu,'Izandla ziyagezana”
