A needy family from the local municipality of Dr JS Moroka enjoys a new home on Madiba Day

The Makena family from Dikgwale village in the local municipality of Dr JS Moroka received a fully furnished and sponsored house, blankets and groceries courtesy of Motheo Construction.

As promised a few months ago at a groundbreaking ceremony, the MEC for Human Settlements, Speedy Mashilo, handed over the house to the family in collaboration with Nkangala District, the local municipality of Dr JS Moroka and Motheo Construction as part of Mandela Day commemorations. .

During the presentation, Mashilo applauded Motheo Construction for partnering with the government to change the lives of ordinary people in disadvantaged communities.

“I am happy that we are here as leaders of various political parties and departments to celebrate uTata Mandela. Above all, I would like to thank Motheo Construction for their generous response to help the Makenas, who were living in terrible conditions,” Mashilo said.

“We cannot reach every citizen. Thus, those who are more fortunate must appreciate what they already have and reinvest in their communities.

Nurse Mmangakane Makena (52) could not hold back tears of joy when she received the keys to her house. “I am so grateful that the contractor adhered to the specifications of the house to meet my child’s special needs.”

The team also distributed 100 blankets to the elderly and sealed potholes in partnership with the Ministry of Public Works, Highways and Transport.

Motheo Construction project manager Lebo Zwane said the transfer was a great privilege, given that the late Dr Thandi Ndlovu, the founder of Motheo Construction, believed in giving back to the needy. “Today we are happy to see how happy the family is and that their life will never be the same. We have indeed honored Madiba’s wishes.

Motheo Construction was established 25 years ago and has built over 90,000 government-subsidised homes across South Africa.
