LEPHALALE — Lephalale Local Municipality (LLM) team, led by Local Mayor, Cllr, Jack Maeko, Municipal Manager, Edith Tukakgomo, and Eskom-Medupi’s Deputy Site Director, Sifiso Mazibuko, assessed challenges at Ellisras District Hospital for intervention as part of their 67 Minutes for Mandela on Monday 18 July. Some of the challenges identified were shortage of kitchen equipment, plumbing problems, shortage of hospital beds and patients clothing.
A local actor who plays the part of the Mayor Mulalo in the soapy Muvhango, Sydney Ramakuwela, was a guest at the hospital and he also jumped in with the rest and helped with the paint work in dilapidated areas of the hospital which lack regular maintenance.
Some staff members of the Municipality and Eskom Medupi did their part in cleaning the hospital and the hospital premises.
Cllr. Maeko said to Mogol Post that they, as the local Municipality, really appreciate the contribution of all the stake holders, in particular Medupi for assisting them in bettering the lives of people. “Keep up the good work” he said.
He also appealed to the other stakeholders such as Exxaro and Matimba to get on board!
After the visit to Ellisras District Hospital, they went to other trust areas to assist where it was needed.
