The only 'Iron Lady' I know

Although he has always felt she has been too strict; Mmegi Correspondent OAGENG BATENEGI believes he owes everything he is to his mother.

She says my late father was kind. Maybe that's one of the few instances where we differ. People who are kind always care and remain close to the growth of those that should matter most to them.Apart from her and my grandmother nobody has ever done that.

They say being a first born is a challenge but it is also worth noting that it comes with a lot of benefits. One has the opportunity to grow as they are exposed to a lot of decisions around the family. This should be credited to my mother and grandmother.

Mothers and many other women out there have taken care of their children to the extent that many believe that there is no need for some fathers. As is the case with many who were born while their mothers were young; it takes time for them to know that they are their mothers. My grandmother took care of me while I was still young in such a way that I thought I was her last born.
