Oasis FM marketing manager Bernadette Swartz spoke to acting Jeffreys Bay Comprehensive High School principal Nomxolisi Makayi, student Nikita Hendricks and matriculant Asinamahle Dondashe about their experience of the COVID-19 lockdown this week.

Women’s Month is set to end on a high note next week when Kouga Municipality and Oasis FM join hands to a host a special prayer session.

The prayer session will take place at 10am on Monday, 31 August, and will be livestreamed on the Facebook pages of the municipality and radio station.

Listeners will also be able to tune in to Oasis FM 89.8 to follow the proceedings.

Kouga Executive Mayor Horatio Hendricks said the session will focus on key issues affecting the region.

“These include the economic empowerment of local women, gender-based violence, the COVID-19 pandemic and the prolonged drought,” he said.

Five woman pastors will join the Mayor for the session, as well as guests who have taken part in the municipality’s weekly Women’s Month interviews.

These guests have included Kouga First Lady Amor Hendricks, medical practitioner Adi Schoeman, matron Cathy Brown, entrepreneur Esty Nhlangulela, acting Jeffreys Bay Comprehensive High principal Nomxolisi Makayi, student Nikita Hendricks and matriculant Asinamahle Dondashe.

“We would like to invite all Kouga residents to join us for the prayer session through the media channels that will be used. Let us stay united in our efforts to build a safe Kouga for all,” he said.
