Noriza Lamani

Cleaning Assistant

Noriza was born in Port Elizabeth and grew up in a small town called Alice in the Eastern Cape. She moved to Cape Town in 1990 and joined the Centre in September 2012 where she enjoys working because she finds everyone friendly and always very helpful. In her spare time, Noriza enjoys attending church and spending time with her family. She also enjoys cooking traditional food such as umngqusho (samp and sugar beans), isonka sombhako (steam bread) and spinach and pap. She has two children and her youngest is currently completing a BCom degree at the University of Fort Hare.
