Grass cutting

During the winter months Chief Israel Ngobeni's wives cut, bundle, carry and thatch huts with grass from nearby fields. It is an annual activity to ensure the village maintenance is done and to use the old grass as compost in the vegetable fields. The ladies are learned from a very young age to work in the fields and carry grass on their heads - it is a job for tough people!
