At home with Kuli Roberts

Dressed in dark blue soccer kit, 39-year-old Kuli Roberts is in her element as she walks barefoot out of her home in Centurion, south of Tshwane.

“Don’t park inside, you’re fine there,” she says pointing protectively at her perfectly manicured garden.

“I’m so happy to be working with people I know,” the journalist and TV host says, while her good friend Iko Mash runs around making sure that all the clothes and make-up are in order for the shoot.

Her daughter glides down the stairs and greets us shyly. “This is my gorgeous baby,” Kuli says, introducing her eldest child, 18-year-old Tembela. “My son, Iaeun (15), is coming later – he’s a sportsman.

Shame, he recently broke his arm playing soccer and, as sad as it was, I was happy that I could be there for him.”

While Kuli, whose full name is Nomakula which means Queen of Indians, gets ready for the shoot her son comes home and she smiles warmly.

“Hello, baby,” she says to her 15-year old. “Isn’t he just gorgeous? He’s the man of the house and always knows where everything is.”

Tembela comes out of the house wearing a dress from the shoot. “You look lovely; you are so beautiful,” Kuli says to her daughter, who is in matric this year.

She’s clearly an affectionate mom and her kids both agree she’s the best. Not only does she spoil them whenever she can but she also gives them endless motivation.
