JULY is Men’s Month and Child Welfare held its 2015 Men’s Month programme at the Maveshe Community Hall in Murchison on Tuesday, where stakeholders mentored young and old men on education, business ethics­, leadership, health and being a man in society.

Nqobile Nhlumayo of Child Welfare said the programme is to ensure the evolvement of men in family structures.

“This programme plays a role in the work we do as men are involved in the lives of children.

“We believe that if men are in the right position in their community and family we would not have so many child problems.”

Oyama “The Great” Valashiya encouraged men to put education first.

“If you are looking for a career you should start in your community and share your vision.

“An educated man shows he has vision,” he said

Valashiya said everything you think can become something, which means if you know what you want as a young boy, you will achieve it as you grow up and become a man.

Also at the event were members of the Black Suit Gentlemen’s Club (BSGC).

Bulelani Lubanyana spoke on behalf of the club encouraging young men to have an ambition.

“Growing up in Murchison in a family that is not well off does not mean you wont make it in life,” said Lubanyana

He said at the BGSC they are taught to take charge of the situation they are in and turn it into something positive.

Lubanyana encouraged men to become leaders in their community and lead by example.

Many at the event asked pertinent questions which indicated their interest in becoming upstanding leaders
