Competition: final big winner celebrates

2007-11-30 00:00

Mnguni, who works raising money for street children as marketing assistant for Umthombo Street Children’s Project, said his role is to contribute in marketing and fundraising for the organisation.

‘When I started as a youth worker, my main interest was building relationships with street kids.’ His passion is clearly articulated in his speech. ‘As we are preparing for the 2010 Soccer World Cup, our concern is what is going to happen to the street kids. We believe that as proud South Africans we should also take pride in that our people are taken care of.’

He said the jackpot came at a good time. ‘Money is always needed, though I just got paid and after paying all my bills, things were getting tight. But when I received the call I said, ‘Oh my God, I’m going to manage’. ’ The first people who will share the prize with Mnguni are his mother and ‘the lady in his life’.

‘First, I will make sure that my mother gets what she needs. I have been thinking about Mozambique lately, and this is the opportunity to take the lady in my life to Mozambique for the holidays.’
