Gugu Ndima

Despite her busy schedule as mother, parttime student at the Wits Business School and spokesperson for the speaker of the Gauteng Legislature, Gugu Ndima fulfilled her dream of writing a book. All in a Galz Life tells the fictional story of five women from different backgrounds who find common ground through their life experiences. Formerly national spokesperson for the Young Communist League, Ndima joined the Gauteng Legislature in 2011, first as media and communications officer in the office of the ANC chief whip, and moved to her current post in 2012. Ndima sees her life in politics as a calling, not a career. She was a member of the ANC Gauteng communications team that assisted with local government elections and still works for the party in the province whenever she can. She writes opinion pieces for several national newspapers and serves as a regional executive committee member of the  ANC Youth League in Ekurhuleni. — Matuma Letsoalo
