“When life took a turn and knocked me down in the past few months, I discovered myself in my lowest moments. I took time to pause and dig deeper what I want in life and where I want to go. I always have a dream to own a clothing manufacturing company hence I decided to go back to school in 2019 to study fashion design so that I can fully understand the fashion industry. Life happened last year and i had to drop out from school,I struggled to focus on my school work because I was so emotional drained but I never stop dreaming . In October I started working on plan B and put my plan A on hold because it needed clear mind. By God’s Grace it worked out. Today I’m here to introduce my dream that I am the Director of Zefara ( Zefara means creativity,charm,curiosity,cheer friendliness and social life). So here we produce school uniforms,corporate uniforms and masks. Soon my clothing line is coming and everything will be produced here 💃🏽.I’m so excited about this journey,doing what I love and creating employment for others at the same time.

Norma’s problems made it to the public eye in July 2020, after a video of a smashed Mercedes Benz G-63 Wagon trended online. It was alleged that she did the damage after finding out about her husband, former Finance Minister Malusi Gigaba’ s infidelity. She was arrested by the Hawks in July for allegedly damaging the luxury ride worth more than R3-million. Norma had also initially faced charges for domestic violence and assault for allegedly assaulting her husband, those charges were subsequently excluded.
Her first victory was from the Gauteng High Court, in Pretoria this February. Norma successfully managed to get the court to rule that her arrest by the Hawks was unlawful and an “abuse of power” by her husband, in an attempt to intimidate her.
