Minga Dlamini, Zingisa Mkhuma and Nakedi Ribane.

This was also an opportunity for the editor -- Zingisa Mkhuma -- to meet with our readers and also to find out from them what they would like to see in the newspaper more than the diverse content that we already cover.

Lebogang Mojapelo and Fani Sibeko.

Among our guests was veteran actress and former model advocate Nakedi Ribane, who was dressed in a snazzy white suit and sneakers, together with her partner socialite Minga Dlamini. Also present was dapper-looking author of Sperm Donor Letepe Maisela, with his partner, Nthabiseng Chabedi.

The group, made up of both women and men, the young and the old, were treated like royalty. The pampering started at 10am, when the readers were spoilt for choice with a buffet for brunch, including sparkling wine.

The brunch consisted of an assortment of food, from oysters to braai lamb. From salmon to boerewors. It was just two hours of eating non-stop while listening to the sounds of jazz from a saxophonist.

After the two-hour brunch, our readers were taken to the hotel’s wine-tasting room where awaiting them were wines from the Spier Estate, based in Cape Town. The tasting room, which accommodates approximately 50 people, was made available for readers.

Visitors to and diners at Indaba Hotel can purchase coupons and get a chance to taste a variety of wines, some matured, while others were light wines for dessert.

The paper will keep inviting more of our readers to further sessions that will take place towards the end of this year and early next year, if Covid-19 protocols permit.
