    Today is Nelson Mandela’s 95th birthday and we decided to celebrate this great man’s birthday with tea and cake! All the staff met in the dining room at 10.00 am and after a short speech our maintenance man Moosa ¬†Makhatini ( our comedian and dance expert ) lit the candles. There was a very loud and beautiful rendition of ‘Ukhulile namhlange’ ( the zulu version of happy birthday ) with Moosa carving a few moves and the girls showing how beautifully they can sing.

    Cake and tea was served and we had a truly wonderful togetherness for an hour or so. The ladies sat on one side of the room while the men sat at another table which is Zulu custom . The men ( instigated again by Moosa ) made jokes about why they deserved the extra slices of cake that were left over. A big shout for the great man and best wishes from all of us, you were very much part of us today.
