Minister Hands Over Shoes and Socks to the Delight of Needy Mbekweni Learners
On Thursday, 23 January, Minister Bonginkosi Madikizela shifted away from his usual focus of handing over of houses and instead channelled his attention on a social responsibility programme where shoes and socks were handed out to two schools in Mbekweni in the Drakenstein Municipality.
The Minister’s efforts were greeted with joy and appreciation by the 94 school children who received the much-needed shoes and socks to compliment their uniforms.
The Deputy Principal of Mbonisela Primary School, Ms Nosindiso Mayeki, as well as the Principal of Mbekweni Primary School, Mr Nceba Njenxa, assisted the Minister with the handover.
As the education Minister, Donald Grant who had a pre-arranged engagement in Kranshoek was unable to attend, Minister Madikizela filled in as the representative of the Western Cape Government for the event.
