WOMEN from different KwaNomzamo Christian denominations participated in a national radio programme when Umhlobo Wenene FM did a live broadcast of their show from the Methodist Church on Thursday.

In a first for Humansdorp, the station hosted the women’s religious programme LelikaYehova Ihlabathi Nenzaliseko Yalo, with veteran presenter Nomthunzi Vuza and co-presenter Noxolo “Noxie” Speelman having the crowds eating out of their hands.

The Kouga Moral Regeneration Movement, in conjunction with the KwaNomzamo Women’s Manyano (Association), were the organisers of the event.

The MRM falls under the office of the Speaker of Council within the Kouga Municipality.

In his welcoming address to the guests and congregants, Kouga Executive Mayor Horatio Hendricks said it was great to see community structures taking hands to bring about programmes to rebuild the moral fibre of the society.

“Our society is engulfed by many social ills and it takes a community, working together with government and other stakeholders, to wage an effective battle against these.

“We would like to thank you for helping to put our name on the map, as Umhlobo Wenene is a big player in broadcasting with millions across the country listening to the programme,” said Hendricks.

The Port Elizabeth-based SABC station has more than five million listeners countrywide with the show attracting more than two million.

MRM Chairperson Siyabonga Tambo said the Thursday radio programme also focused on raising awareness around breast cancer.

October is recognised internationally as Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

“This (live broadcast) doesn’t happen often, but we are hoping that we would be able to have the radio station again in future during our campaigns,” he said.
