EFF councillor at Fetakgomo Tubatse Local Municipality, (FTLM) Surprise Malapane made a difference to 12 learners last Friday
He donated 12 pair of shoes to needy pupils at Marakabele Primary School in Dresden.
“It makes me happy to give back to my people. This school is just next to my home, it’s a stone’s throw away from my home and you know they say charity begins at home.”
He told this publication that he often saw children walking bare foot to school, and decided to relieve their plight. Malapane said his party prioritises education.
“These pupils are the future of our country. We want to make sure kids in government schools get free shoes and uniforms when we are in power. Let’s not allow poverty to disturb them to get better education.”
The school’s principal and management thanked Malapane.
” We will hand the shoes to the neediest children from disadvantaged families who will cherish these gifts. We plead with the community to keep on donating to our school, “said the principal of the school.
