Makungu is my name, named by my daddy. I was the only child or can say the first child in my village to be named Makungu, I now know other few Makungu in my village. My name is unique and I would like to say that I am unique too. Makungu is a beautiful name and it has a meaning and the meaning means something to me. Growing up there is this song that I used to sing and I loved it so much though I the message that time it did not get to me, but because in the song there was my name that made me to love it even more.
Now that I have grown I understand the song and I no longer love the song but I am in love with the song. The song goes like “Xikwembu xina Makungu, xivona tiko rilova nta rhuma mani misaveni.Tatana rhuma mina niyava fela misaveni”this means that God has a plan, seeing his country falling apart, whom should I send to the world to save them. Father, father send me and I will go and die for their sins.
Makungu means plans, decisions, and I believe that God has a plan with my life, God has made decisions about my life of which I may not know at the moment, but because I trust and believe in him, I know where he is taking me. I may not be where I want to be right now and I may not know where he is taking me therefore I trust that he is busy paving my way at the moment.
I also believe that I was planned to be in this world and in order for me to take good decisions. Xikwembu xina Makungu hi mina, Lord I love my name and I wouldn’t have asked for a better name from my dad, because this is the best name. God has a plan with me.Every time someone asks my name, they find it difficult to pronouns it, ‘come again’ therefore I say it slowly so that they can be able to say it. I also tell them what it means because they always ask. My name is Makungu. I am decisions, and I plan.
One of the modules that are making me insane right now, this module honestly feels like torture. Well in first semester the module did not seem to be that difficult though it was challenging. What I liked about it was that every week I was eager to go and learn new staff and I would not want to miss a lecture no matter what. The lecturer that we had too was enthusiastic and she never wanted us to give up, that is what encouraged me a lot, and also helped me to be more focused. Though it was not easy but she always had a way in making us understand, and she also gave us homework every week so that she can see if we really do understand or get what she has taught us.
Well my problem now is that we now have a new lecturer and I am finding it difficult to catch up with her, or I can say that I am not yet used to the way she does things, but I am hoping and willing that eventually I will get used to her, and also understand her method. But nevertheless I honestly don’t think I would do this module if it was not compulsory. As a Public Relation student I then again feel it is good to be challenged, and that is what this module is to me, it is channeling me in a good way though.
The module is very interesting especially with the things that I have learnt so far, which some of them I always asked my self on how it was done. For example how people got to design their business cards, how magazine layouts were designed and so forth. I have learnt a lot of things in which sometimes I get confused on the information concerning Photoshop, InDesign, and Adobe illustrator.
Living Gospel World Mission Midrand, ahh what a weekend we had. I still remember the time i came to Midrand, my pastor from home “Springs” was so worried that im going away and that i will hardly be at church. Little did the know that i Will find a church with carrying and loving people. Well anyway that’s a story for me to tell another day. I wanna talk about the youth conference that we had, Lord is great all the time. We were indeed restoring God’s kingdom on earth.
I missed he first service on Thursday, and the preachings was very powerfull. Though i managed to attend on Friday and Saturday, well if you weren’t there jeez you missed out big time, because this was just on another level.
In 2014 I came to midrand to peruse my dreams, I registered in Midrand Graduate Institute, now known as Pearson Institute of higher education. Little did I know that I will meet wonderful people,young, vibrant, active, God fearing and go getters. I met a lot of people some came and go, but they never left me. Sisterhood, what is sisterhood? According to Urban Dictionary sisterhood is bond that is above blood relation,it is a connection that goes beyond being siblings. It is not a bond that happens over night just like forming friendship,it takes time and effort. That is sisterhood.
It is hard to understand what sisterhood is until you experience it yourself. I know because I hahave experienced it,with these ladies,I love these ladies from the bottom of my heart. I might not tell them everyday but I want them to know today. I also want to thank them for being there for me when things we’re good and bad. They never left me they been with me through thick and thin. I appriciate that girls and I thank God for you guys each and everyday, y’all we’re indeed sent from heaven. When Grace locates you, and I have no doubts that Grace lacalocated me where I was supposed to be because I am still here.
Grace also located y’all to my life. You guys I’m crazy in love with you with the love of the lord. Myp aka Grace thank you girl, myf aka Thabelo, Elrica I call her mogwera same, Charity I call her lovings, last but not least My chomi Mpumi and since it’s still woman’s month I would love to say happy women’s month to you all. You deserve it because I know now that you all women. Sisterhood that is my definition of sisisterhood and you guys describe it perfectly. Yall are crazy and you make me crazy too but i love our craziness.Happy woman’s month.
So we done with elections and we now facing collision, it is called collision in south Africa. This is what is happening at the moment, soo ANC and DA need to have more than 50% in order for each to take charge of the Tshwane municipality and therefore they both need EFF’s votes. Meaning that it is up to Julius Malema to choose on which political party will get those votes. They in a collision because they have been given two weeks to work this out.
Malema also said that if the EFF give the votes or percentage to ANC the therefore President Jacob Zuma must step down as the president. Soo this is really difficult not knowing what is going to happen, it is really bad. These political parties are both begging EFF’s votes, they actually need them and now there is only one week left remember they were given two weeks.
The Tshwane municipality is on the edge notknowing on which is going to rule under, it is also a bit scary because this has never happened since the democracy. It is called the collision that is what tshwane municipality is facing at the moment. Will it be DA or ANC.
Now that the elections are over I am sure that that’s the question lingering in almost everyone’s head and it makes sense because the ANC has always been in charge of most provinces but now the DA is also pulling up their socks. Some people believe this is the start of a new era in democracy where people will actually have another party to compare with when it comes to the ANC,while other people are afraid of what will happen next because it is something new. I’m also nervous on behalf of the ruling party because people are actually fed up,they are tired of the devil that they know.
This is the time where the ANC needs to prove themselves of being capable of remaining the ruling party and also,the DA needs to earn the people’s trust by looking out for them and keeping their promises. From all the tweets and Facebook posts that I have come across, it is clear that people are very uncertain of the future and would like to trust the ruling party but for how long? #IfDAWins has been trending for days now and if you go through these posts it is obvious that people are trying to deal with the stress through exposing how they think it will affect the country, which shows that there is still work that needs to be done!! Our people still associate white people with apartheid.
I came across a post,actually posts which clearly showed that people think that this is the start of apartheid 2.0 and this may be the reason why some people have been clinging on the ruling party. This is the time where the ANC needs to put their house in order and address issues that need to be addressed, just like how the silent protesters were treated when the President was giving his speech…that was the perfect opportunity to makes things right but very. Let me not even talk about the ANCWL because they are all about protecting their president more than the women of this country! Women are always being silenced for telling their stories and not even the ruling party can stand up for abused women.
So I am actually one of the ladies who were born in July, a month of the legends.If you are born on this month ahh baby you are the one, we beautiful, everyone is jealous of us and actually we are the real gems. W e fun to be with, we take pride in oneself and another thing we honest, I know this because this is me, this is who I am. Well as for these ladies they so much like me as well, some of these ladies we come a long way and some of them we met not so long but time is nothing if you enjoy the company of your loved ones especially when they resemble who you are.
We were born in July different years and dates but same months. I mostly express myself in speaking communication is just one of the tool I cannot do without, I met all of these ladies through communication and understanding, they are so much like me and I’m so much like them, and you know why its because we were born in July. We are concern about people’s feelings, we friendly and mostly we approachable though a lot of people mistaken us for being rude which is not true. I have heard a lot of people saying that they thought I was rude because I was quiet until they got to know me well.
One thing that we mostly struggle in is that though we forgiving but we never forget or can I say that it takes us time to forget, and we caring and loving, this is something I have learnt frim these ladies and myself too. We never struggle in making friends because we very talkative ohw yes that is us, JULY LADIES.
