Lihle Tshabalala is a young, former Mail & Guardian journalist who has also had a short-lived stint in broadcast journalism working for eNews Africa. Lihle has been part of life-changing events like the ANC's Polokwane conference and slept in refugee camps during the xenophobic attacks. Ms T thinks there's still hope for her in news journalism even though she has moved to Marketing Research. Living and loving Soweto is what she is about and is convinced there is a mouthful (blogful) she can share about the intricacies of being a deeply rooted kasi girl. Most of her opinions are light "something to think abouts" that probably won't make headline news in the M&G but will provide some food for thought.
