LEPHALALE — Lephalale SAPS Cluster was divided into two groups in order to accomplish all their planned activities for their 67 minutes on Mandela Day on 18 July.
Their activities were as follows:
The first group under the leadership of Lephalale Cluster Commander Brig John Masia went to The Fold Children’s Home, in the Bulgerivier Policing area.
SAPS, members of the Bulgerivier Community Policing Forum (CPF), members of the Youth on Crime Prevention Programme, members of the Victim Empowerment Programme (VEP) and the management of the Good Shepherd Centre School, took part in activities which included painting of the school and the handing out of clothes after which the children could enjoy a huge cake.
The second group, led by Lt Col Mabote, Station Commander of Tom Burke SAPS, went to Sefihlogo village where they paid a visit to Me Moatshe, the late Flora Moatshe’s grandmother. Flora was allegedly murdered by her boyfriend, Steve Mfisa, on 29 April 2007. He buried Flora’s body in a shallow grave.
Me Moatshe, who is blind, was celebrating her 92nd birthday on Mandela Day.
Lephalale SAPS Cluster handed over food parcels to her, her yard was cleaned and her garden was tended to.
These kind deeds were done by SAPS Tom Burke, SAPS Villa Nora, SAPS Groblersbridge Port of Entry, SAPS Stockpoort Port of Entry, the CPF, VEP and YCOP.
