By Themba Mndebele Roots Butchery from Eyethu Mall Orange Farm donated food parcels and school materials to Duzenedlela needy learners.

Roots Supervisor, Kopedi ‘Chillies’ Mosoatsi said: “We normally do this annually and the reason we donate food to this school is we consider this as important to do and giving back to the community. Since they are the ones that make us to grow and supporting our store every day. We pick any random school as today we chose this one. People forget about these learners, our aim is to fulfill the needs of our community. We are trying to engage with other companies to give back to our Orange Farm community.’’ Kopedi added: ‘‘It touches my heart when I see the children smiling and excited this way. No child must come to school hungry. We are also supporting orphanages as well, there’s an orphanage in Orange Farm we support every month.’’ Principal Angie Tshoeu thanked Roots Butchery on behalf of the school and learners for the donations.

Orange Farm woman tells her story

Olivia Makete resident of Orange Farm Ext 10, who lives in a small shack in the South of Johannesburg. On 5 February she smarted a beating at the hands of the ANC Members outside Luthuli House. ‘’ We were going to handover a memorandum regarding service delivery we need of water, houses and electricity in Orange Farm Ext 10. I have been living here since October last year,’’ she said. ‘’We left Orange Farm in a van and when arrived in town the car took a wrong turn. The road was closed but the police then opened it for us to go through. When we stopped at a traffic light, just opposite Luthuli House, a group of ANC people started assaulting us. I fell on my tummy; I don’t know the person who kicked me. He kicked me on my bums and ribs I couldn’t walk the next morning.’’
