LEPHALALE — “This new entrance gate to the Ledibeng Eco Estate is a symbol of passion, possibilities and people.” So said Mrs Susan Pretorius, Chairperson Ledibeng Eco Estate Property Owner Association during the opening of the project last Thursday 14th July. She specially thanked the contractors who were involved in the realisation of the project and sang their praises for their commitment that saw the project being completed in record time. Lofty Fourie from Elcoserve was the contractor and Kobus Booysen from DEP Installations looked after the electronic device. James, Renier (the foreman) and Dumisani were always at their stations.
Johann Young presided over the official opening with a message out of Nehemia 1 and 6 and 7. “They told me, the exile survivors who are left in the province are in bad shape. Conditions are appalling. The wall of Jerusalem is still rubble; the city gates are still cinders.” He added that projects and problems go hand in hand and that passion is not a guarantee that a project will run smoothly. “But the completed project also communicated something very powerful: God was behind this work”.
According to Susan the new gateway stands as a symbol of possibilities, people and relationships that grew stronger through teamwork. Willem Louw from Mamre Property Management planted the seed of the gateway and cultivated it. Andries Smith was the project engineer responsible for the organic design. Henry van Schalwyk, estate manager and his team will take over the access control.
Susan said: “Women always have the last word but in this instance however, Jethro, electrician on the project said: “Mam, anything is possible”. Susan replied tongue in cheek: “Let us all believe anything is possible …. with the help of a woman”.
The opening event ended with refreshments provided by Johann and Elmé Young.
