We dedicate this one to our six angels. Children from Ndongane and Nxonjeni villages in Freystata, aged between six and eight years drowned whilst crossing the river on their way home from school.
“What makes the situation even more disturbing and hurtful for us as the municipality is that we have on the 24th of January introduced the contractor that will construct a bridge at the Nxonjeni stream (where the incident took place). The contractor is already on site, as you can see their site office by the river side. All this, is an attempt to ensure safety of our children and community members at large”, said Mayor Mbedla (March 2019).
