Dubbed the Queens of Ladies Night Lerato Mtolo and Simphiwe Ngema are on a mission to inspire healing.

Mtolo and Ngema were in relatively young marriages when they lost their husbands. Mtolo, a public speaker, entrepreneur, MC and pastor, lost her husband Thabani in a fatal car accident in August 2018 while actress and singer Ngema became a widow after her husband Dumisani Masilela, ex-footballer and actor, was fatally shot in August 2017. It was the common pain that brought them together to help women in similar situations to heal and be inspired to face life.

This coming weekend, Friday, March 31, 2023, Mtolo and Ngema will be hosting an All-White Ladies Night at Anew Hotel in Pretoria from 6 to 6. For this year’s edition, the duo are hoping women, from all over the country and neighbouring countries, will be in for emotional healing and empowerment treat.

“Ladies Night is not just an event. It is an initiative where we deal with emotions mostly as a result of loss, whether of a partner, business, family member and so on. It’s about emotional wellness of women. It’s a great platform where we see women sharing their stories without fear of judgement or feelings of inadequacy. Our sessions are fun, warm, relaxed and open minded, therefore we aim to tap into the heart of each woman like she would attending the session alone,” Mtolo, who co-hosts the event with Ngema, told Gospel247.net.

Through their organisation – Her Heart Speaks, Mtolo and Ngema have hosted Ladies Night in different cities. They have also taken one edition to Botswana.

“It has been four years now transforming minds and changing lives with Sims. She is a humble person. She even goes deep into her pockets to cover events costs when we run out of sponsors or resources. She is running with vision so beautifully. I’m not just grateful for her but I am super blessed to have met her,” said Mtolo.

“We have transformed lives like our lives depend on it. The grace of God has been so present in the journey. We have had great feedback from ladies who have attended our sessions. Whenever the going gets tough, it is their kind remarks that keeps us going. We get feedback like, “Lerato, Sims, I was on the verge of suicide, divorce and giving up but now I see life differently. Our social media platforms are also buzzing with requests to please bring ladies night to their countries and provinces. So that too shows the impact and difference we are making. Ladies Night is indeed one of the best institutions for healing.”

Participants during Ladies Night

On Friday night, Mtolo and Ngema have lined up experts, who will be tackling various topics to inspire and motivate those in attendance. Mtolo, author of And Yet She Became, says they are ready to handle whatever stuff the women will be coming with.

“We are all about transforming the mind of a woman to be a better mother, sister, wife, colleague, friend, associate, leader and community member. We focused on rebuilding the broken vessel without dwelling on their past. We are different because we let you share your story and we engage with you on how you contributed to your state and how can we best heal and pick up again. We allow one to vent, to cry and express their pain. We have professionals who are going to give advice, or point of views on each matter. We don’t let one leave the room without adequately addressing their issues. It’s an all-night affair. There will fun, games, preaching and prayer. It’s going to be awesome,” said Mtolo.
