Bongani Mahlangu lost his leg on his 13th birthday when a motorist crashed into him while he was playing with friends next to the road. Now out of school, Bongani remains a great example to young kids and is now an ambassador for Jumping Kids.
Bongani could be fitted sooner, (rather than later), with the correct prosthetic solution.
The best part is being able to do sport again and all the wonderful sponsored events we get to go to that is organised by Jumping Kids.
I dream of being successful in my sport and education. I would also like to inspire others by proving that amputation does not mean the end of life.
My message is that an amputation does not have to mean the end of your career or future goals. It is possible to live a normal life just like anyone else.
