MEMBERS of Youth, Arts, Mentorship and Sport (Yams) spent their 67 minutes with the Gamalakhe community on Mandela Day doing good.

Kevin Dlala, Yams chair said they chose Gamalakhe because many of their members come from the area.

Dladla said the area had been identified a while ago and the organisation will do doing most of their programmes for the Gamalakhe community.

“On the day, we honoured the legendary late former president of our country, Nelson Mandela, for the tireless work he did for the betterment of society,” said Dladla.

He said as part of their programme they painted Zibambeleni Old Age Day Care Centre, planted trees around the children’s park and jungle gym connected to T.B. Molefe sports field, played games and hosted a show by local artists.

Dladla said they arranged for Gamalakhe Lower Primary School pupils to participate in the events.

“Pupils came in groups during school time and then after school as the programme went on all day,” he said.

“A big thank you to Coca-Cola for funding the majority of the costs involved in organising the event. We also thank Sebenza Nurseries for donating a truck full of plants, and last but not least, we would thank councillor Phumlani Gumbi for helping us secure the stadium and ensuring that the event was in line with municipal requirements,” said Dladla.
