Housing Manager Mr. Thembinkosi Mthembu and Mandeni Municipality Mayor, Sphesihle Zulu inspecting KwaCele household in ward 12.

 Mandeni Local Municipality Mayor, Sphesihle Zulu facilitated a visit to KwaCele Household at Machibini, ward 12 on 23 October 2018.


The move to visit the family was in the Thuma Mina campaign which was launched by President Cyril Ramaphosa in his inaugural State of The Nation Address earlier this year.


Zulu was accompanied by Housing Manager, Mr.  Thembinkosi Mthembu and they inspected the conditions the family lives in and further offered support as well as suggestions of giving the household a facelift. Part of the visit was to ensure the family’s safety as they are situated at a perilous area with water flowing from an upper street into the home’s premises.


“We are duty bound as Municipal officials to ensure that our people are safe, we have seen the conditions in which this family lives under and we can see that the situation is dire” said Zulu.


“The family needs an urgent intervention, we will come back with the technical team to make sure that we upgrade their living conditions”
