MaMkhize was recognized at the Heroines Awards yesterday for her contributions to community development and athletics.
She expressed her gratitude for the prize on Instagram, saying she is humbled by it.
“What an epic evening room full of powerful women. A big thank you to the Heroines Awards for bestowing such a great honour on me for my contribution to community development and sports. I am humbled by this award and more so for celebrating me whilst I’m still alive,” she wrote.
MaMkhize also added that she learnt some important life lessons during the COVID-19 pandemic. “One thing we’ve all learnt from this pandemic is that life is too short and it’s important to celebrate every moment big or small”
She said she had the best time of her life at the awards ceremony. “I had such a fabulous time last night, it was great being in the company of other brown skin QUEENS looking to make a difference in the world. The journey to get here has not been easy but moments like last night sure make it worth it. I’m truly humbled,” she wrote
Her son Andile assisted her in putting together her gorgeous attire, which she wore with a blue suit and sneakers.
She wrote: “Honestly I didn’t understand this brief because I’m a girl who loves her heels, especially with a suit.
Anyway, I had to consult and my Prince @andilempisane10 said “don’t worry mom I’ve got you”. Thank you, son I love my look, you’re the best!!!!”
Yesterday MaMkhize penned a lengthy Instagram post wishing her friend Max Mqadi a speedy recovery after he was shot on Thursday night by unknown suspects while he was leaving his restaurant. Max owns a Lifestyle restaurant in Umlazi.
