Basetsana Kumalo turned 50 years old in style during a three-day soiree in Cape Town this past weekend with family and friends.




Her birthday came just days after a victorious court judgment on the defamation case between her and controversial author, Jackie Phamotse who was sentenced to two years of house arrest, a fine of R30 000 in total or imprisonment, 16 hours a month of community service until her sentence is done. She is also required to check in with a social worker for assessment and take up a life skills programme. She is to refrain from alcohol and narcotics.




The three-day celebration was attended by family and close friends, Lupi Ngcayisa, Josina Abiathar Muthemba Machel, Nandi Madida, and Professor Mamokgethi Phakeng, to name a few. The celebration started with a thanksgiving, gratitude gala dinner themed Purple, then Saturday, a Gratitude gala dinner themed 'Best Of Couture' and on Sunday a thanksgiving picnic themed 'Floaty and Fun Pastel.'
