Executive mayor of Sekhukhune district municipality, Stanely Ramaila opened a new house and donated food parcel to unprivileged Mogola’s family at Maseven village on 31 July 2018.
He was accompanied by municipal manager Nora Maseko to fulfil the “thuma mina” programme established by the ANC president on his first State of the Nation Address (SONA). This programme was meant to inspire the public servant to work for the people.
Ramaila said it was very crucial to provide the courtesy on Mandela’s month. “Starting from today I will adopt the family to keep them away from the poverty” assured Ramaila.
“Anyone who was passing by would not wonder why we decided to build this family house. We felt conscious for eighteen family members to wake up together in one small room. I can assure you that at the end of August 2018 furniture would be installed in the house,” said Ramaila.
“We urge the community to assist the needy with everything they could especially food. People must learn to share needs with others to shirk poverty. Throwing food away whilst others are suffering is unpleasant,” Ramaila concluded.
Mogola’s family were extraordinarily pleased to receive food parcel and glad to have new house. The victims applauded government”s effort
