Actor Menzi Ngubane on how he's raising his daughters: ‘I hide nothing from them'
Being a father to two daughters, veteran actor Menzi Ngubane has revealed that he makes sure he gives them the right guidance so they make the right life decisions.
Menzi shared how he is raising his daughters, Siya, 22, and Ziyanda, 11, during a recent motivational talk in Tweeling, Free State.
The former Isibaya actor shared a video of his motivational speech on Instagram, highlighting that, “as a parent, I hide nothing from them. I tell them about the phases they will go through.”
He also touched on how he makes sure he teaches his girls to have high standards when it comes to men.
“I always tell my girls to look at what I do in this house. Look at the places I take you, because I don’t want a boy to promise to take you to Sun City as if you’ve never been.
“I take my girls to Sun City, Durban and Cape Town because if there’s a boy who comes and promises to take them there, they will tell them that my dad took me there. So, come up with something new.”

Yesterday I motivated young boys in Tweeling Free State, an event that was organized in partnership with the Free State government. Premier Sisi Ntombela called on parents who can afford to adopt struggling / orphaned boys to do so. Members of her office each adopted a boy in order to create a bette future for them. Let’s all play our part to change the behavior of our young boys for the better. #internationalwomensday #gbv #boymentorshipwithmenzi
Speaking to young boys, Menzi said it is important for them to choose what they want to be.
“This thing of 'following suit' because of the kind of people you look [up to], who are doing wrong, will only leave you lost. You need to choose what you want to be in life.”
