THAPANE VILLAGE-Charles Semono and his wife’s story is one of hardship and resilience. The couple, who are both visually impaired, have been surviving on disability grants for their livelihood. They have three children, including a 13-year-old child with a disability, and have been living in Thapane Village for over a decade.

After being evicted from their previous home, the family was forced to move in with relatives. For the past nine years, they have been renting accommodation in Thapane Village, struggling to make ends meet.

Fortunately, the MEC for Cooperative Governance, Human Settlement and Traditional Affairs, Basikopo Makamu, has come to their aid.

He has been in constant communication with the family and has promised to build them a new house.

The MEC has also pledged to provide furniture for the family’s new home. He has given a three-week completion deadline, after which the family can move into their new home.

The MEC’s timely intervention has given the Semono family a much-needed ray of hope. The family has been struggling to cope with their living conditions, and the promise of a new home has lifted their spirits.

The MEC has expressed his deep sorrow for the Semono family’s painful story and has reassured them that their new home will be built to the highest standards.

The Semono family’s new home is being donated by Asima Construction and Consulting, along with ventilated pit latrines and a water storage tank. The family will have access to these essential amenities, which will improve their living conditions significantly.
