An elderly resident from Sherwood Park, known as Tannie Mariam Mackenzie, celebrated her 85th birthday with locals and City of Cape Town officials last month.

Mackenzie, a backyard dweller since 1963, celebrated the auspicious occasion in her new brick home and received various gifts including a new lounge suite and a huge birthday cake.

Mayco member (North) Siyabulela Mamkeli visited the excited local in her new house, situated in the new housing development in Manenberg.

Mamkeli thanked his team, along with Sherwood Park Neighbourhood Watch, the Gugulethu and Manenberg Women for Change teams, and the Manenberg community for making the day a memorable one for Mackenzie.
