Life will never be the same again for Gogo Nokwanele Sidinana after she received a new wheelchair, courtesy of Councillor Khayalethu Nethi on Freedom Day. Sidinana,76, stays in J Section in Khayelitsha, and was bedridden for almost two, thanks to her new wheels.“Now, I will be able to move around the house and go and sit outside when it’s hot. I was struggling even to go to the clinic, now I’m free,” she said.Her grandchild Zizipho described her grandmother as a talkative and very energetic person. “We are so happy and relieved because she will be able to move around even if we are not here. It is her first wheelchair ever.”Ward 93 PR Councillor Nethi said they have donated about two wheelchairs to needy people as presents for Freedom Day. “As we are celebrating Freedom Day, we decided to donate these wheelchairs to the needy. We gave mama Sidinana and Sinazo Mageduka,23, from Litha Park who was involved in a car accident at the age of five years.We give them these wheelchairs so that they can move freely,” he said. Nethi urged community leaders to work with the City to identify needy people so that they can be assisted. “As the City, we assist wherever we can. These wheelchairs are from the City, which is in partnership with the Korean government, in order to assist needy people,” said Nethi.Nethi, however, emphasised that the City needs to build-disabled-friendly houses for people living with disabilities. “What we have perceived is that there are no houses built for people with disabilities in mind in Khayelitsha. And we need to change that and build houses which are accessible to everyone,” said Nethi.
