Tribute To A Loving Community Servant
Chamane remembered Masinga as a compassionate community leader who actively engaged in projects that benefited underprivileged families. He added,
“She was always involved in the community projects especially those that benefitted disadvantaged families. She was always available whenever she was needed for assistance, and that is why the community had access to her house. We have lost a good person, the only thing we are left with are the memories of how she loved her community.”
