Short Story

I am Monwabisi Somana.

I work for the Eastern Cape Provincial Government.

This year I turn 50.

I am the proud father of Amani and Liso, who both attend Selborne College.

After observing the initiatives for Ubuko unfolding at the school, I decided that it was time to get involved…

The Ubuko 60 Run is an attempt to raise funds, while celebrating my 50th with significance.

The 60 km run takes place on the 15th October starting from the gates of Dale College and ends at Selborne College.

Ubuko was two years old when he was diagnosed with meningococcal septicemia. This led to gangrene and sadly Ubuko lost both his legs and several fingers…

He is now currently in Grade 8 at Selborne College and we, quite literally, want to give him a hand.

Not only has Ubuko had the challenges of adapting to everyday school life on his blades but he also only has his thumbs and an index finger to work with as well. As you can imagine this makes even the most basic of tasks, a massive challenge.

Despite all of his challenges Ubuko continues to smile his way through it all. His attitude towards life is truly unmatched.
