Mzansi actress Zikhona recently gave birth and has made it clear that she will never starve her baby just because people are uncomfortable with a mother breastfeeding in public.
The actress took to her Instagram account to give her piece of mind, stating that if a person is uncomfortable looking at the baby feeding then they should cover their eyes.
“Here’s what’s not going to happen, my baby and everybody else’s baby who feeds from the breast is not going to go hungry because of the strange comments made when a woman decides to feed her child. If it is uncomfortable for you to look at a feeding baby that needs to grow, then perhaps YOU cover YOUR eyes or you get up and you walk away.
“I don’t want to talk about how strange it is to not want to see a child feeding because we all know that in the beginning of your life you too had to suckle from your mother’s breast,” she wrote.

The star announced at the early part of last month that she has given birth sharing a cute photo of herself with her baby in her arms.
She mentioned that she is sure her life will never be the same again: “Every now and then…when you have the nerve or the confidence to take a moment and look at your life… so you stop…. and there it is! Your life as you’ve lived it before this very moment and you know beyond any doubt that things will never ever be the same again. This right here is one of those very moments!”
She added that she is proud of her younger self and she hopes God grants her the right armor for her new journey.

And here’s to getting to know the 35 year old woman who is at the beginning of something new and wet behind the ears in this parenting thing too
