A self-taught carpenter continue to show off his talent


“I represent an NGO in Benoni, my director saw an article about me repairing desks, so intrigued by it,” A self-taught carpenter who implored for good samatarians to donate him carpentry machine earlier this year in January.

Social media fumed in January 13 as people recommended good work done by Election Lethiba of fixing broken 135 school furniture’s at Fetakgomo secondary school.

After fixing damaged desks and tables, numerous press had uncounted interviews with him over good work he did at the time including his favourites weekly paper, Sekhukune Times.

SekhukhuneTimes afforded him an opportunity on January 16 to plead with good samatarians to donate him working machines.

Few weeks after his article was published a non-government organisation (NGO) based in Gauteng, in Benoni handed him a voucher worth R17 000 to buy equipment. 

“To be honest I was not expecting good samatarians from Gauteng to buy me machines. I realised the role of the media is very crucial and as people we have to acknowledge the present of the media in our communities,” said self-taught carpenter.

Recently Lethiba designed table paired with six chairs in Stydkraal village.

He is currently looking for a workplace.

“It is not nice to work at home, machines i am using make lot of commotion. Workplace would be advantageous as here in home I am causing lot of commotion on daily basis,” he said.

Despite living under commotion his family support his work.
