ONE of Kouga’s oldest residents was showered with love on Nelson Mandela Day.

The house of Rosie Napu (108), believed to be the oldest resident of KwaNomzamo at Humansdorp, was given a complete revamp by Kouga Municipality.

Walls were painted and new flooring was installed. An additional dry wall was also built in the house to create a separate room for the toilet, which was previously open for all to see.

Napu is originally from the Loerie area and has been living in KwaNomzamo for longer than she can remember.
