South Africa’s media rising star Lerato Kganyago rebukes those who attribute her success to “connections” through her privileged background.
A apicture of Lerato locking hands with her relatives, former SABC spokesperson Kaizer Kganyago and Reserve Bank governor Lesetja Kganyago, was trailed by the message: “connections help elevate you to certain positions, or is your talent enough?”

She reminded the advocates of connection how hard she has worked to get to where she is today.
She hinted that the guy could not see a woman win
“I love how it’s men that discredit women’s hard work. You have all erased my journey, my groundwork, my struggles, how long it took me to be here. Because your masculinity won’t allow a woman to succeed on her own! I feel sorry for the women in your lives.”
She berated another Twitter user as abusive as she claimed he throws his masculinity around.
“FYI this is abuse starts because your masculinity can’t stand that a woman did it on her own! As a journalist, I thought you would have done your research! Failed dismally.”
