Winile Mamba nominated in Dlangeni
By Nombulelo Matsebula
Miss Swaziland finalist, Winile Mamba has been nominated by the Edlangeni Umphakatsi for the position of Member of Parliament. Mamba was among the 10 nominees on the day and notably the only woman and the youngest.
The finalist, who was born and bred in Edlangeni is excited by the nomination and says she was not aware that her community had so much faith in her.
“ being nominated is an honour and if I am chosen as MP, there is a lot of change I can bring to my community,” Mamba said
She believes she can make it to parliament as her age allows her. At only 21 years, she is sure to make a difference in the country. She is inspired by MP Hlobisile Ndlovu.
The fact that she is a rose among nine thorns is not a problem to her and promises to do her best should she make it to parliament.
Mamba recently made a donation of clothes worth over E10 000 to the Edlangeni orphaned and vulnerable children, where she said her dream was to build a neighbourhood care point for the children.
Mr Bread came on board and promised to give out over 70 loaves of bread to the carepoint to enable the children to go to school having had something to eat and come back to a decent meal.
Though she failed to make it to the finals of the Miss Swaziland pageant, she has big dreams, and as promised, she will continue with charity work.
