Child headed family receives a house

By Elvis Tshikhudo

The Malapela child headed family from Mmakgatle Village in Ephraim Mogale Municipality will never be the same again. The family background will change to a better life after being handed over a four-roomed house and furniture donated by Courtesy Management Cc owned by Mr Danis Khosa.


The new house was officially handed over by the MEC for Public Works, Roads and Infrastructure (LDPW), Jerry Ndou and MEC for Co-operative Governance, Human Settlement and Traditional Affairs (CoGHSTA), Ms Makoma Makhurupetje on behalf of the Premier of Limpopo Province Mr Chupu Mathabatha.

The three children Mr Mathaba (23), Mr Godfrey (21) and Ms Phumula (13) whom their parents passed on in 2010 shared a shark house with one room. Both Mr Thaba and Godfrey do not have a stable job and the family depend on government social grant for Ms Phumula who is doing grade 7.

“Restoring the dignity of the needy family is necessary and is one of the provincial government priorities and will continue to serve our people “MEC Makoma Makhurupetje said.
