DA to donate water tanks and a wheelchair to forgotten communities on Human Rights Day

Tomorrow, 21 March 2019, the Democratic Alliance (DA) Limpopo Premier Candidate, Jacques Smalle will donate two 5000 litres water tanks to the residents of Mandela Park in Ga-Kgapane.

The residents have been without water for over 10 years notwithstanding the fact that taps were installed in their village by Greater Letaba Municipality.

The majority of the residents carry water from the nearby river where animals also drink for their consumption. This is a clear violation of basic human rights enshrined in the Constitution and indicative of a non-caring government.

These water tankers will be installed at strategic points within the village and will be monitored so that they can be routinely filled.

At a separate event, the DA’s Councillor, Engelina Malatjie will donate a new wheelchair to a disabled young man in Peter Nchabeleng village next to Blood River outside Seshego. This young man has been using a rickety wheelchair for years which is difficult to navigate.

On Human Rights Day, we recognise the price paid by our country’s struggle heroes like Nelson Mandela, Steve Biko and Helen Suzman who fought for the freedoms afforded to us in our Bill of Rights.

Smalle will be accompanied by DA Councillors and Activists.
