Day of Goodwill: Zuma visits Impendle

2010-12-27 00:00

PRESIDENT Jacob Zuma found time in his busy schedule to spend the Day of Goodwill with the community of KwaNxamala in Impendle yesterday.

This was announced in a statement released by the uMgungundlovu District Municipality (UMDM), which stated that all the mayors in the district were present, as were various izinduna, odlunkulu and amakhosi.

The community turned out in their numbers — and estimated three thousand — as Zuma highlighted the importance of the day. He urged those present to use it as an instrument for community upliftment, self-reliance and nation building.

As a gesture of goodwill, 40 families who were recent victims of a heavy rainstorm that left them homeless were given food hampers provided by the South African Social Security Agency and the UMDM’s disaster unit.
