She wants to continue her Legacy
Uzalo star Gugu Gumede is not prepared to let her late mother Zanele kaMagwaza Msibi's Legacy die down. Her late mother was a successful politician who lead the national Freedom Party. Following her footsteps Gugu will be serving the party and go wherever it needs her to go.
Political parties are working overtime to canvas for the upcoming elections. Gugu Gumede is also on the ground urging supporters to pledge they are support on the polls.
Gugu told supporters during the NFP's manifesto launch that she is a proud member of the NFP and will serve the party with all she has. "..." When I am here, I am not maMlambo but a proud NFP member. This is the party that was led by a leader without a single corruption mark against her, a true definition of a leader," she said as quoted by Daily Sun.
" seeing you here really brings me so much joy and lots of emotions because I believe my mother left very early without seeing us getting back what we lost when we were intentionally disqualified from the 2016 elections," she continued.
Gumede continued by pointing out the faults at the Zululand District Municipality, " we are going to vote and we will vote for the NFP. We will get everything that belongs to us. For five years, the zululand district municipality has failed to deliver basic services... Our time has come to take over where we left when we lost power... If you need me, I am available and I can go anywhere you need me. We can't let Njinji's legacy die," promised Gugu.
Gugu who plays maMlambo on Uzalo penned a heartfelt note on her social media following her mother's death last month. " my mother was a giant. A King. She came from nothing and had the task of breaking many generational curses blessing many family members in between. She was a dedicated public servant, a pioneer and activist who changed many people's lives to my brother and I, though, she was Mommy. My BEST FRIEND. My confidant. My greatest fan. My prayer warrior. Our queen bed we so dearly loved and revered."
Zanele lost her life due to cardiac arrest linked to covid-19. " words will never be enough to express our appreciation for the love and affection that she single-handedly raised us with. We never lacked and when the opportunity presented itself, we ensured that she never did too and we are appreciative of these. We thank god that she lived long enough to watch her children be successful in their own rights, and bless her for it in, she was loved and appreciated immensely."
Gugu wished her mother a peacefull send off, "Hamba kahle Njinji Yengwayo. Our hearts are in shambles, but we remain as strong as you were. I am so proud to be your daughter, Manqondo. I will always walk tall. You did it!"
