Their love knows no bounds, and their guidance shapes the future of our society.

In addition, Dube-Ncube on behalf of the province acknowledged and commended the women and mothers who spearhead initiatives such as cooperatives, fostering economic growth and empowerment within our communities.

She said these initiatives not only provide financial stability but also create opportunities for skills development and entrepreneurship, empowering mothers to thrive in various sectors of the economy.

“To all the mothers of KwaZulu-Natal, I extend my deepest gratitude for your immeasurable contributions to our province. Your tireless efforts, boundless love, and unwavering strength do not go unnoticed,”said Dube-Ncube.
