Last weekend the Princess of Africa Yvonne Chaka Chaka was in the country for a good cause. She came to give her support to Shule Foundation an NGO that takes care of former street kids. The NGO is raisng funds to construct a schhool.

And dspite a power blackout and bad sound the spririt of the princess could not be dampened as she rolled back the years to put up a lively performance for the charity cause. 

The event which was organized by Shule Foundation founder Jackueline Wolfson in collaboration with several other partners and stake holders, was to raise funds for former street children now settled under the foundation and Chaka was invited as the headlining artiste and gladly accepted to perform free of charge.
