Where did Nokubonga obtain her education?

Nokubonga and Nokwanda attended Umlazi Comtech. After finishing school at Umlazi Comtech they didn’t know what they wanted to do so they enrolled at Coastal KZN TVET College, a technical school that focuses on commerce.

What was Nokubonga and her twin doing before coming to Imbewu?

Their mom, Nokuthula Xulu-Khuzwayo, was an unemployed widow with five girls to feed “and this forced us to go out there and look for a job”. Nokwanda worked as a waitress in Durban, while Nokubonga worked at a call centre in Mount Edgecombe.

They held not these jobs for too long as they felt it wasn’t their dream. So they decided to open a hair salon so they can assist their mother to support their impoverished siblings.

The hair salon transcended the twins’ life to another level, because they used the money they got from acting to finance their dreams of acting, dancing and singing.
