HAVING lost hope of ever owning a car 45-year-old Zamokwakhe Jeremiah Cele was surprised when it was announced that he was the winner of a brand car at the Khayelihle Funeral Services’ 10th birthday celebration at the weekend.

The event was held at Harry Gwala Stadium on Sunday when Cele’s key opened a Datsun Go.

“I had written off owning a car in my lifetime … but little did I know that God has another plan for me.

“People struggle with car repayments and at times end up losing their assets and for me, through being a Khayelihle Funeral services policy holder, I have a free car,” said the Unit 18 resident.

He has been with Khayelihle since 2012.

The second winner of another Datsun Go was 35-year-old Nompumelelo Immaculate Khanyile from Unit 18 Imbali whose key opened the car and when it did, she collapsed.

Medical teams had to monitor her before she regained her composure and sang a song of triumph­.

“When I first heard about the competition in March, I knew then that God would be on my side and I even named the
car Izibusiso - my blessings. Every time I passed Khayelihle head office, I would always say ‘come December the car is mine’,” said Khanyile .

Another 50 policy holders won R2 000 each, totalling R100 000 in prize money as was promised­ by Khayelihle management.

On the day Khayelihle unveiled a surprise third vehicle, Chrysler Voyager, which it gave to the Msunduzi Disabled Club, the members of which are wheelchair-bound athletes.

From working with the club over the years, Khayelihle saw the need to be of assistance and make it easy for club members to get around.

Norman Mkhize of Norman Driving School offered fuel for the club’s travelling.

John Hall of AB Hall, the 100 Capital Race organiser, was also at the event.

Renowned Pastor Sthembiso Zondo gave an inspiring talk and music was also the order of the day. – Supplied.
