“The station is nothing without the people who tune in to listen to it. As we grow, we see it fitting to grow with the people that make the station what it is. We are overjoyed to be awarding an ordinary listener R 31 000.00 in celebration of the station turning 31 years old.” These are the words of Rio Mabunda Ligwalagwala FM Station Manager after making the announcement on Kusile Mzansi with Madumane. 19 year old Felicia Lukhele won herself R31 000 on April 30, 2013. She is one of nearly a thousand people who wrote in to the station explaining how the station has made a difference in their lives.

 

After thorough consideration, her letter made it into the top five. A team went out to pay the top 5 surprise visits to authenticate their stories. Subsequently her letter was selected as the winning note. In her letter Felicia stated that she suffered from heart failure. This condition led to her torso filling up with water to a point where she resembled a pregnant woman even though she wasn’t. She was forced to leave school at age 13 to avoid relentless torture by her peers.

 

 

Her condition was misdiagnosed for three years and she couldn’t find help until her mother heard a guest doctor on the station listing symptoms similar to those of Felicia. They called the station and were connected to the doctor. She underwent treatment for a year that included open heart surgery, after which she recovered enough to return to school and continue with her life.

 

 

19 year old Felicia is now in grade 10 at Sakhile High School and dreams of becoming an engineer one day. Her body has returned to normal and although she lives on medication, the intervention by the station has made it possible for her to keep working towards her dreams.  “I will use the money to get some medication that is sometimes hard to get due to lack of finances and invest some of it towards my education” said Felicia Lukhele.

 

Listeners can get their share of the celebrations that continue on air. There is R 3 100.00 to be won daily on Kusile Mzansi with Madumane. Tune in to find out how to win.
