Kerusha Kylie Govender Joins Mela

Date: Aug 17, 2017

The Mela family proudly introduces a new addition

27-years-old Kerusha Kylie Govender originally from Westville, Kwazulu Natal recently worked as a legal advisor at a Football Club in Johannesburg.

Kerusha believes that she embodies what it means to have a Western mind, Eastern soul and African heart. Her greatest passion lies in empowering people and her role as Project Co-ordinator for a women empowerment CSI over the last four years has taught her that one can only empower if one takes the time to understand. It is for this reason that she loves to travel, whether it be to a small mining community in Kuruman in the Northern Cape or Coimbatore in the South of India.  She enjoys learning how different and yet how similar we are. People coming together to share in the wealth of their experiences and wisdom is what she believes moves humanity forward.

Kerusha has appeared on Jo-Ann Strauss’s TV Show, Glambition where they discussed what a women’s beauty means in the African context. She appears quite regularly on Sky’s the Limit, Mamelodi Sundowns television show, which airs on SS4 in her capacity as both a legal advisor and Project Manager of Miss Mamelodi Sundowns.

She is currently the Clicks Cover Model and has appeared on the cover of their ClubCard Magazine, Beauty Magazine, one of their television commercials and several of their other advertisings.

Having won the title of Miss Mamelodi Sundowns in 2012 and being a 2016 Miss South Africa finalist, Kerusha loves embracing her feminine side and cannot resist getting all glammed up for a fabulous occasion.

After working for five years in a corporate setting, Kerusha sees herself moving to follow her passion of people.

“I’m thrilled for the opportunity to be a presenter on Mela as I believe the show and I are both exciting, dynamic and people orientated,” says Kerusha.

Kerusha makes her first appearance on Mela in the second week of September 2017. Mela airs Sundays at 14:00 and is repeated on Tuesdays at 14:00 on SABC 3, “The Stage Is Your”
