Mpumi's Feast of Love
Mpumi and Gogo share a special bond. They enjoy their time together - which often involves making meals together. When Gogo becomes ill and does not come back from the hospital, Mpumi is left with a very sad heart. Her friends and neighbours make a feast full of love to help Mpumi and her family remember Gogo in a special way.
