“It feels great to be getting back into the swing of things again. I had my time to grieve properly, so I’m just so excited.

“It’s been different without my Mampintsha. I had to learn to make decisions on my own. Before I used to make decisions with Mampintsha, so I’m doing everything on my own with the help of my team, but all is well,” she said.
