Wow, and wow again

LAST week’s front page article on Greytown’s first Mandela Rhodes pupil, Mfundo Mdletshe, attracted an overwhelming 14 364 hits on the Greytown Gazette Facebook page. Comments expressed pride, not only in Mfundo, but Greytown and Greytown High School. This talented young man will be completing his Masters in Development at UKZN this year.
