Limpopo Premier Chupu Stanley Mathabatha has launched the Sekhukhune District Food Bank on 15 May 2020, at Old Jane Furse Hospital in Sekhukhune District.

“Since the outbreak, government has embarked on measures to assist vulnerable households through the provision of food parcels to deserving beneficiaries. I am glad that the District Municipalities have already distributed hundreds of food parcels to our deserving people in the province, “says Premier Mathabatha.

“Life under COVID-19 is not going to be the same, we’re now in a new normal,” says Premier Mathabatha.

Mr Chupu Mathabatha also slammed officials and politicians who abuse food parcels for their selfish ends. He urged the media and the public to expose such a rogue element.

The Premier said Councillors are not allowed to distribute food parcels but will only assist in identifying indigent families. The eligible officials will distribute food parcels.

Speaking during the launch the Executive Mayor Stanley Ramaila said over 27 000 indigent families in the district are eligible to receive food parcels.

He called on business and individuals to contact both the District Municipality and the Department of Social Development for a list of food items they could buy.
