Ms Leuta then described the feast of meals on offer, ranging from Umphokoqo Namasi (mealie pap with sour milk), Gibanica (traditional Croatian savoury party meal), Chakalaka, Dumplings, Matemba (fishballs), Kapenta (type of fish, favoured by the Shona), Maotwana (Chicken Feet, aka “Walky-Talkies!), Portuguese Chicken, Sweet Potato, Homemade Ginger Juice and, of course, Uncle Woolies’ and Aunt Pick n Pay’s “baked overnight” - Koeksisters, Milktart (Melktert), Jewish Cake (Babka), Greek biscuits.... and much more. It was a lovely, festive, heritage feast in the staffroom of Dominican, with the family members dress in style in their traditional regalia.  A special guest at the School (Professor Lenake, here to work with the Sotho departments) said “This is amazing. I have been to events that are similar but this event has soul, the spirit of family is evident in the interaction of staff”. -  Sandisiwe Leuta.
