The People’s Paper spoke to some Mzansi celebrities to find out how they were planning to spend Christmas.

  • Manaka Ranaka, who plays Lucy on Generations: The Legacy, said she was planning a relaxed Christmas because her schedule was very hectic.

“I normally spend Christmas Day with my family,” she said.

“I enjoy my mum’s cooking.

“She often prepares a leg of lamb, but I’m hoping for a braai this time.”

  • Socialite Zodwa Wabantu said she usually spent Christmas with her son, but this year she will be on the road.

“My son and I normally go to church in the morning and have a
traditional meal in the afternoon.”

  • DJ Mahoota said he will spend time with his family before rushing off to four events.

“I will meet with my family for a big lunch,” said Mahoota.

“We are a big family, so we often prepare huge meals to accommodate everyone.”

  • Dancer and actress Bontle Modiselle said she often spends time with her family on Christmas Day.

“I don’t spend much time at home because of work, so I don’t compromise on Christmas Day,”
she said.

“I want to be with my family, especially my mum.”

Bontle said they will prepare a mix of African and Indian food.

She said she wasn’t expecting gifts. She prefers experiences.

  • Gospel singer Winnie Mashaba said she would be going to church with her family.

“When we come back we will eat lunch together,” she said.
