Mzansi's celebs & politicians convey well wishes for the new year
SA celebrities and politicians flooded Twitter with well wishes for the year ahead.
From overcoming the scourge of abuse against women and children to building a better country for all, this is what some of Mzansi's big names had to say:
2019 saw scores of women lose their lives to gender-based violence. For actor and filmmaker Mmabatho Montso, the issue of women's safety must be taken seriously in 2020.
Happy new year to all womxn. 2020 we occupy space - the night, the alley, the street must belong to us. We don’t only have the right to live, but the right to live freely and joyfully. I love you. Happeeeee💕💕💕💕— Mmabatho Montsho (@MmabathoMontsho) December 31, 2019
Former DA leader Mmusi Maimane called for South Africans of all races and backgrounds to unite and focus on a common goal — building a better country and economy for all.
“It's a new decade, it gives us an opportunity to forget what lies behind and truly press on to the future. A future where South Africans realise that we are South Africans regardless of race and background. We have to look at some key goals and these have to do with us creating an economy that works.”
Abundance is what actress Zenande Mfenyana wants for Mzansi. “Plenty of wealth, health, success, peace and joy.”
