SHOOTING FROM THE HIP

I joined The Big Issue in 2010. I was introduced to
the magazine by a friend who was also a vendor. It’s a wonderful experience.

Behind the seams with Nancy

“I’m originally from iDutywa in the Eastern Cape, but I moved to Cape Town in 1989 to find employment.

I wasn’t lucky in finding a job due to my disability. I was in a bus accident many years ago and the bus caught alight. We had no option but to jump through the windows, and I fell and broke my arm.

Even though my arm was no longer straight, I could still use it so the Eastern Cape health department wouldn’t classify me as disabled. It was only when I arrived in Cape Town that I was told I’m disabled and started receiving a disability grant.
