GA-MOGASHOA – Mogoshoa family’s plight of being forced to live in a dilapidated mud house for years is over, thanks to Makhuduthamaga Local Municipality Mayor, Minah Bahula’s efforts.
The family of four could not hold back their tears of joy when Bahula accompanied by Sekhukhune District Municipality Executive Mayor, Stan Ramaila and CoGHSTA MEC, Bisikop Makamu, handed them over a five-roomed house in Ga-Mogashoa village.
According to the family their plight of being forced to live in a dilapidated mud house dates back to over ten years ago, under inhospitable conditions.
Lemson Moropiane, Makhuduthamaga Local Municipality Spokesperson, said the handover of the house to the family was part of the ongoing mayo’s programme to identify needy family and provide them housing through help of the business community.
Moropiane said the house was the third one to be handed over to needy families within the jurisdiction of the local municipality since mayor Bahula’s tenure.
“Remember the number of house CoGHSTA give to people, RDP houses, cannot cover all at once. So, Mayor Bahula took it upon herself to help improve the socio economic statuses of the needy in the local municipality through this programme, building houses for them,” said Moropiane.
Moropiane said mayor Bahula also committed to help a 28 year-old man in the family to acquire a drivers license to be able to help the family.
“We are still to identify more others needing help in this regard. This is an ongoing programme and we hope to extend a helping hand to many others through the help of the business community.
