Single dad shares challenges of being a father with Briefly News

Ayanda Msibi, who lives in Midrand, Ekurhuleni, told Briefly News how difficult it is to raise daughters as a man.

"It's been three years raising them on my own. We don't know where the mother is. There are things that a mother can do for them that a father cannot. My young one wants to be cuddled and held when she falls asleep, and I use that time to study and complete my work. I try to give them the love and affection they can get from a female. I'm not that emotional, but I try to be sensitive when it comes to them," he said.
