MONSTERLUS – Sekhukhune District Municipality hosted the provincial International Day of People Living with Disabilities at Bosele School for the Blind and Deaf in Monsterlus outside Groblersdal on Monday 03 December 2018.

Scores of disabled people, structures championing the rights of people living with disabilities as well as provincial and municipal officials, traditional leaders and Limpopo MEC for Social Development, Mmapula Mokaba-Phukwana and Sekhukhune District Municipality Executive Mayor, Stan Ramaila converged at the school in commemoration of the day.

MEC Mokaba-Phukwana, on behalf of Limpopo Premier Chupu Mathabatha, who could not attend due to other commitments, delivered a keynote address to hundreds of people.

Mokaba-Phukwa emphasized on the need for community members to treat people living with disabilities with love and care.

The MEC said it was important for people to treat the disabled in the same manner in which they would expect themselves to be treated in the society.

“We need to care and love people living with disabilities and help them in whichever way we can in our communities,” stressed Mokaba-Phukwana.

She said people living with disabilities needed to be aware that government had programs designed to help them better their lives.

“We also want to appeal to families with people living with disabilities to not lock them indoors and only take them out on the day of grants payout. Let us be there for them and show them love at all times,” said Mokaba-Phukwana.

Sekhukhune Executive Mayor Ramaila said they saw it befitting to commemorate the day at Bosele School for the Blind and Deaf.

“We are happy that even this year we came to celebrate the day with the school as we promised them we would last year. What is important is that we show them love and care and that we are with them,” concluded Ramaila.

The school expressed gratitude for Limpopo Provincial Government to come commemorate the day at the facility.
