Special Report – Liziwe’s Guest House in Gugulethu

Updated Monday, 18 April 2022

Liziwe Ngcokoto is the owner of Liziwe’s Guest House. Long before the establishment of the Guest House, Liziwe bought the plot of land and lived in a shack on the plot for five years. Then she and her husband, Donald, decided to build a house. Together they worked tirelessly towards building their dream home. Once completed, the couple decided to extend their home into a welcoming Guest House.

My husband and I have come a long way, from staying in a shack on the plot and receiving a donation of bricks from Sappi Craft where my husband has been working for 25 years. He would come home at night and clean bricks, and today that has paid off. We have beautiful walls and a home that we decided to turn into a Guest house, This has been a thrilling and exciting journey for us …” says Liziwe.
