The Covid-19 has caused not only deaths of people but also making people run out of cash.
However, Candy Tsa Mandebele Mokwena wasnt left out as she opens up about how hard life has been since the Covid-19 pandemic hit.
The singer and actress said she is surviving on her 92-year-old mother for support.
Candy has type 2 diabetes and is part of the group of people who are more vulnerable to Covid-19.
This keeps her from moving around and making money.
Ever since the government banned social gatherings, the singer has not been able to get gigs to make money
She said she applied for relief from the Department of Sports, Arts and Culture but had not received anything.
She wanted to make it clear that she was not broke because she did not work, but rather because of the pandemic.
The singer added that her pensioner mother was sending her R600 for food.
She said: “My mother is 92 years old. Instead of enjoying her money and me looking after her, she is buying mealie meal for me.”
According to Candy, the ANC’s Bathabile Dlamini sent her a food voucher after hearing about what she has been going through.
Fortunately it seems things may be looking up for the media personality.
She recently bagged a role on Skeem Saam.
She said the new job came at the perfect time and was a blessing for her.
