Buyani Zwane

We are still on Women’s month, and this time calls for Mr Buyani Zwane to talk to us about his words of wisdom, his love for humanity and his respect for Humankind. Whoever said life is for the dead? Oh no! life is for the living, for those who have the power of endurance, for those that have learnt from their mistakes and those that have learnt to apologise for their misdeeds. Children are born everyday but it is up to us to love and protect them against the harshness of this world.
