A Limpopo woman who has a disability is pleading with a Good Samaritan to donate her a motor or battery wheel chair.

Tsakani Joyce Maluleke of Mbatlo Village in the Greater Giyani Municipality has been having a disability after she fell in 1984 and became paralyzed three years later after she suffered a stroke.

The local hospital provided her with a wheel chair which she says is now not user friendly and sometimes gives her problems in bad roads.

“I sometimes want to go to church or to a spazashop and when I am faced with a situation where the road is bad I sometimes fail to use it and I need someone to push me and I have become a bother to many people,” she said.

Maluleke, 45,  says sometimes when her wheelchair gives her problem, she would appeal to passersby for help and some would just pass by and say they are in a hurry.

“I believe if someone could buy me a motor or battery wheel chair it would save me the trouble of bothering other people to push me,” she said.

She says she has seen someone with such a wheel chair and she is satisfied it would be ideal for her.

She has made her appeal through Facebook.

One of the people who were touched by her plight is Simon Sithole a community leader from Greenfarm Village in the Collins Chabane Municipality.

Sithole said she deserved help and called on South Africans to come to her aid.
