Limpopo MEC for cooperative governance, housing and traditional affairs Jerry Ndou has praised two people as a single mother of two received a decent house from the government. Ngobeni, 25, a single mother of two received a house in a function attended by hundreds of residents. Speaking at Majosi in the Collins Chabane municipality Ndou praised ward 10 councillor Dorgan Ndou and contractor Khwara Nengwekhulu for a job well done.
“The two proudly represents what President Cyril Ramaphosa meant when he said “Thuma Mina.” They stood up to do a job we are all proud of,” said Ndou of a four roomed house built at Sukani section of Majosi.
“If all of us could join the president and the two to work for our communities, this country will be better than it is,” said Ramaphosa.
He said he was also pleased that the recipient of the house is a young person and it meant young people were able to grab opportunities in the country.
He said the government has enlisted 120 young people who are being trained in leadership development. “Let young people avail themselves and take up positions in various fields such as construction.” He said young people must understand issues such as procurement. “We are a nation at work,” he said. Altogether 28 houses were handed to beneficiaries on the day. The contractor Nengwekhulu said: “All the houses that I built were approved by project managers as completed because I was building each house as if I was building my mother’s house,” he said.
Collins Chabane municipality mayor Joyce Bila said her municipality was on cause to change the lives of people. Hosi Majosi praised the government for building “decent houses in the area.” “The house such as that was received by Ms Ngobeni is fit for a king,” he said.
