ZF Mgcawu gives back in honour of Nelson Mandela


ZF Mgcawu District Municipality has spent their 67 Minutes on Mandela Day in Upington, Karos and Raaswater respectively. The council and staff of ZFM has ploughed back to communities in honour of the late Tat’uNelson Mandela. The speaker, Cllr Moses Moalosi said the District Municipality must work towards going beyond the good deeds on Nelson Mandela Day. “We have come too far to stop here, let us show the people in our communities that Nelson Mandela day is every day,” said Cllr Moalosi.

Cllr Moses Moalosi has also previously visited the elderly woman, Elizabeth Snyders in Karos who is 102 years old. On Mandela Day, the elderly woman was delighted to see familiar faces and expressed in happiness, “Ai dit is weer jy my seun” [sic]. Snyders who lives with her daughter has thanked ZF Mgcawu District Municipality’s council and staff for caring for the elderly in honour of Nelson Mandela.




The District Municipality has handed over food parcels, blankets and beds to the elderly. The Executive Mayor, Cllr Abraham Vosloo has asked that the municipality starts immediately with plans for the next Mandela Day in 2018 so that the programme can reach a broader spectrum within the district.

The programme which was successfully conducted was well represented by Northern Cape Member of Parliament, Hon. Joyce Basson, members of the ZFM council, Cllr Abraham Vosloo & Cllr Moses Molaosi, ward councillors and administrative staff of the district municipality.
