CHILDHEADED FAMILY RECIEVES MUCH NEEDED HOUSE

On 03 November 2020, Mandeni Local Municipality Mayor Cllr. Thabani Mdlalose officially opened a house in Ward 7, at KwaZungu homestead. The beneficiaries are 6 siblings who lost both their mother and elderly sister in 2008 and 2018 respectively. Since then, they have had to feed for themselves and through support from neighbours. The much-needed assistance came through Human Settlement's Operation Sukuma Sakhe Programme.

Speaking at the house opening, Mdlalose lauded the neighbours for their spirit of ubuntu and urged other community members to aid one another in times of need.

"We thank the neighbours for their support, it’s great to see that there are people who are able to show ubuntu."

Mdlalose futher stated that changing people's lives is the core objective of government.

"This is what our people want to see, this is what they helped put us in power for. We did it at eDokodweni Area, and we are here doing it today" said Mdlalose.
