Zodwa Wabantu pleased she could help young mom, child
Vosho queen Zodwa Wabantu is very proud that she could help a child with a disability and shared why it was important for her to give back to her community.
Wabantu kept good on her promise and after verifying that the information of Gabisile Mhlongo and her disabled child, the entertainer pitched with the R10 000 cheque in hand last week.
Speaking to TsishaLIVE, Wabantu said she was happy to help and that the money she parted with was no comparison to the feeling she felt after handing the cheque over.
"She (Gabisile Mhlongo) cried and she couldn't believe that I had actually showed up. I was happy because I realised just how much I was helping her. I also hope that other people help her too, that money will help but more is needed."
Furthermore, Wabantu went on to elaborate as to why she reached out to Mhlongo and why she decided to give her the money.
"I was just so touched by her story and I just wanted to help. I mean, I could have brought groceries but then I thought money would be better for her. It will help her search for the special school for her child and maybe do other things that have been keeping her from giving her child better things. I've waited a long time to be able to help. Her story touched me, I had enough money to help her, so I did."
Tweeps were also happy about Wabantu's act of goodwill and praised the dancer for being a good Samaritan.
