I credit photography for having allowed me to pay lobola for Susan when I was 17 years old. I met this woman and she agreed to be my wife, I don't know what was on her mind. In August we would be married for 41 years. This is the best decision in my entire life.Bonang Mohale, Business executive
I was brought up by my grandmother. I became debt-free when I turned 40. In the township, all the houses looked the same. I applied to Wits even though it was classified as a white university. I told the dean, Phillip Tobias, that I wanted to make as much money as possible within a short space of time.Bonang Mohale, Business executive
IT is not about sharing the little money Suzan and I have made, it is about being able to present a role model. I heard Lot Ndlovu on the radio and wanted to be like him. So I decided to do a management course. It is the second-best decision I ever made, to leave medicine and become a managerBonang Mohale, Business executive
