Did you know Connie Ferguson has Botswana roots. OPINION

Connie Ferguson is legendary actress and is without a doubt one of the most influential women in South Africa. She is affectionately known to her magnitude of fans as Karabo Moroka a character she portrayed for over a decade on SABC1 soapie Generations. She is a prolific performer a great story teller probably one of the best in the country. She is very passionate about her craft always determined to succeed by any means necessary.

She has reputation of helping and inpowering other people. Together with her late husband Shona Ferguson through their company Ferguson Films they have inpowered many people. They created jobs and gave opportunities to many upcoming actors , in the process they changed so many people's lives. She inspires me and is definitely a true inspiration to many people out there.

However according to Wikipedia Connie is alleged to be a foreigner , born Constance Masilo in Lobatse Botswana over five decades ago. Which literal means that she is not a South African by birth , she might have attained a local citizenship but on a contrary she is a foreigner.

What made me write about this or should I say the moral of the story is that foreigners are people like us. Therefore we should not descriminate by title , fame or status but all should be equal respected. If we were to treat other foreign people with the same love and respect as we do to Connie , the world would a better place and we can make our land a better place.

Do good onto others and thou shall do the same for you. This is just my opinion that is what I think maybe it's because I was raise by a grandmother , I know some people would dissagree with me and it's okay because each and every person is entitled to his or her own.
