Reflecting on her radio journey and her time at Vhembe FM, Lady T expressed gratitude for the opportunities she had been given.

“I will miss radio; it has been part of my life for many years. I will miss my listeners and my colleagues. To the youth, I say learn not to give up on your dreams because it is through your dreams that you can achieve your goals,” Lady T remarked.

Vhembe FM’s acting station manager, Mr Mukhethwa Ravhuhali, praised her as a hardworking presenter who had contributed immensely to the phenomenal growth of the radio station. “We bid her farewell with mixed emotions, saddened that she is leaving us and wishing her well in her future endeavours.
