IDENTIFIED community members and grannies in the Twistville area received blankets and food parcels at a function at their community hall last Friday.

The Greater Kokstad Municipality mayor, Bheki Mtolo, his wife Nombuso and deputy mayor Karen Walker attended the event.
Ethel van der Merwe (57) received a blanket and shoes and thanked the mayor for the donation.

Mtolo said people of Twistville deserve more recognition because they are peaceful, not violent when addressing their problems to the municipality.

“People of Twistville didn’t complain when beautiful RDP houses were built for people of Shayamoya, now the municipality is going to make sure that the refurbishment of Twistville houses is completed. A total of R1.2 million is set aside to rename the municipality building after Adam Kok III and erect a statue in front of the municipality building in honour of Khoi and Griqua people that mostly live in Twistville,” said Mtolo.
