Mhani Grace Ngobeni Takes A Bows.
Munghana Lonene fm messenger Grace Ngobeni is retiring from the employ of the SABC August 31, 2019. Popularly known as Mhani Grace, Ms Ngobeni has served the corporation for 28 years, having joined as a cleaner in 1991 at the Giyani Satellite Office. She was later promoted to a messenger in 2000, a position she has held until her retirement.
Relaying her feelings about leaving the corporation, Mhani Grace said she has mixed feelings. “I feel sad because the SABC was like home for me, but I am excited at the same time. Amongst the things she will miss the most; she cited convivial and ever-friendly Munghana Lonene fm colleagues, as well as the station’s OB’s and “our ever growing Xitsonga Music Awards (XMA’s). Part of my responsibilities at Munghana Lonene fm was to show pupils and educators our building and our studios. I enjoyed taking them around on tours, and that also will forever remain in my memory.
A bit reticent on divulging any details regarding her future plans, Mhani Grace only offered a tremulous parting shot to staff members remaining to carry on the baton. “No matter how hard it becomes, never quit but soldier on”.
Munghana Lonene fm will be holding a farewell function Wednesday afternoon in Studio 9c to celebrate and honour the years she spent at SABC Limpopo.
