SOON-TO-BE-JAILED Maritsa Gouws is appealing to the Pietermaritzburg community to help her raise her “bail” when she participates in the Cansa Pietermaritzburg’s Jail and Bail tomorrow, 26 May at Liberty Midlands Mall.

She will be joined by Msunduzi Municipal mayor, Chris Ndlela, Msunduzi Municipal speaker, Babu Baijoo, Kevin Beekrum from Xcelarate outsourcing, Shashika Selall from Top Roti and Erica Abrahams from Entrepreneur Crosol Engineering and Acacia Bush Lodge.

Gouws, a Schwarzkopf Professional Mrs South Africa top 25 finalist, will be raising money for the organisation during her fund-raising campaign. She will be participating in various charity and fund-raising events to raise as much money as possible.

Gouws needs to raise as much as possible by 5pm. All funds raised will be donated to Cansa Pietermaritzburg and be used for Cansa’s service delivery in the city.

“I am not allowed to leave the jail unless I come up with my bail money and I have an urgent meeting to attend to that evening and I need to be bailed out as early as possible. Please help me,” she said.

Gouws will be locked up in a Suzuki vehicle, the official Schwarzkopf Professional Mrs SA sponsor, at the mall from 1pm. Companies that donate towards the bail will appear on all her social media feeds on the Mrs SA Facebook page, Instagram and Twitter and the name will be announced by MC’s, Bengs Nkosi and Mandisa Gwala, on the day.

Members of the public can take photos with the prisoners for R20 each. All photos will be immediately posted on social media.
