Public Protector and Executive Mayor hands over a house

TSIMANYANE – The Matsela family of 17 has for years been forced to share a two roomed house in Tsimanyane village outside Marble Hall within the Ephraim Mogale Local Municipality (EPMLM).

The 17 member family, parents, seven children and eight grandchildren have been trying to apply for an RDP house for years without success.

During the Public Protector, Busisiwe Mkhwebane’s, visit in Leeuwfontein outside Marble Hall two years ago in August, the family was identified as needy.

On Monday, 09 Septemberr 2019, Sekhukhune Executive Mayor, Stan Ramaila and Mkhwebane officially handed over a five-roomed house to the family to restore their dignity.

In addition to the newly built five-roomed house the family was handed over new furniture and grocery on the day.

Ramaila said only the mother in the family was employed through an Extended Public Works Programme (EPWP).

“The family has been applying for an RDP house yearly but for unknown reasons their attempts to get the house were not fruitful. We sought help from local contractors, through their community social responsibility programme, to help build a house for the family,” said Ramaila.

Ramaila said they were happy to lend a helping hand in ensuring that Mkhwebana’s promise to build a house for the family was realised.

The Executive Mayor said another family was identified in Suiverfontein outside Groblersdal within Elias Motsoaledi Local Municipality (EMLM) during Mandela Day Celebrations and they were working to also help them get a house.

The family was overwhelmed with joy and expressed gratitude for the Public Protector Mkhwebane and the Executive Mayor Ramaila to ensure they had a proper roof over their heads.
