I am happy to announce and present our latest and third edition of the EW Blog eBook. It has been over a year since the EW Blog came into existence. We have had a good journey thus far and also numerous obstacles on our way, but I am happy to see that we are still holding on and doing well in our journey to grow the brand. Our team of contributors continue to grow in each and every edition. In this edition, I am happy to announce that there are contributions from two strong women, Makhosazana Mavundla and Immaculate Meje.
This edition is dedicated to all women in the country, but most importantly, to our sister and fellow writer Immaculate Meje. While we were still celebrating her joining the team, our beloved sister Immaculate sadly left us on the 8th of September. It is on this sad background that we decided to honour her with this edition.
The month of September has indeed started on a negative footing for the EW Blog family, only us but the entire country as a whole. Since the start of the month, the country mourned the death of Uyinene Mrwetyana, Natasha Conabeer and other women who were the victims of gender-based violence.
On this edition, we take a look at the measures which the government should look at in solving the issue of gender-based violence directed to women and children. We also celebrate strong women in entertainment, business and politics industry. There are also latest book reviews, from Mcebisi Jonas’s After Dawn, Vuvuzela Dawn, Vagabond of Lerato Mogoatlhe and celebrated author Niq Mhlongo’s latest offering titled Black Tax among others.
Again, I forever indebted to our favourite book publishers, Pan McMillian South Africa, Jacana Media and Jonathan Ball Publishers for providing us with the latest books. I would also like to thank our chief sub-editor Khotso Sello for editing the entire edition. A big thank also goes to the rest of the team, especially my friend and co-owner of EW Blog Thabang Malatji for all the hard work he puts into everything related to the EW blog project.
Thank you and enjoy this edition dedicated to our sister Immaculate Meje.
EW Blog Chief Editor
