Congratulations to SA Winners at the Africa Movie Academy Awards


 Journ’Tau would like to congratulate South African movies that picked up Africa Movie Academy Awards (AMAA) at an event held in Lagos, Nigeria, over the weekend. The nine wins by South African movies show that the dedication of the many who work in the under-funded film industry in this country are succeeding in making good quality films that are appreciated all over the African continent.

How to Steal 2 Million which stars Menzi Ngubane, Terry Pheto and Rapulana Seiphemo was named the Best African movie at the ceremony. South African beauty, Pheto who stars in American soap opera The Bold and the Beautiful, received the Best Supporting Actress award for her role in How to Steal 2 Million while Charlie Vundla scooped the Best Director award for his work on the film. The movie was Vundla’s directorial debut. Film editor, Garreth Fradgely, received the Best Achievement in Editing award, making How to Steal 2 Million the biggest winner on the night with four trophies.

Nursing students often go through tough training as they learn how to save lives and often nurses get little credit for the important that they do. Recently those training to get into this profession got a chance to let their hair down as South Africa’s largest hospital selected Mr and Miss Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital 2012.

Hospital project officer, Londiwe Ntuli, says this was to boost the youngsters’ confidence. “Today’s event, we want our students to feel confident with their bodies, especially ladies. We want our students to have fun as they work hard in their studies.”
