Ezibeleni police officers in the Chris Hani district generously helped to renovate a disadvantaged family's home, which had been in a dilapidated state for quite some time.

According to SAPS, the officers took the initiative after on-duty members from Ezibeleni SAPS identified a disadvantaged family at Bhekela Village, Komani. 

"The members then decided to make a change in the Ntshanga family's situation. Ezibeleni SAPS called upon different stakeholders to ensure the success of the initiative," police spokesperson Captain Namhla Mdleleni said.

Mdleleni said the commissioner made use of the platform to condemn gender-based violence in society. 

"Gender-based violence and femicide undermine human rights," said Siganga.

On behalf of the family, Mzoli Ntshanga expressed gratitude for the work done by SAPS and the different stakeholders, in ensuring the warmth and comfort of their home.
