RAY Nkonyeni Municipality Manager Max Mbili visited the Emafu Lutheran Church at Okhalweni last Sunday and donated R10 000 to it, which will be used for development. Another R6 000 was donated by former pupils.

The church was used as a school years ago, which is where he began his schooling.

Mbili said those years ago the nearest school from where he lived was 14 kilometres away, resulting in some pupils not making the daily 28km walk and dropping out of school.

“After seeing this the church offered its building to be used as a school,” said Mbili, who said there are many successful professionals, who are the product of the school.
