- The ANC's loyal - and perhaps oldest member at 93 - Andrew Mlngeni donated 100 blankets to the old people of Soweto Home for the Aged on the 13th of June
- With nights getting colder and colder, the elders appreciate the kind act
The South African winter can get very frosty, so ANC's Andrew Mlangeni took it upon himself to donate blankets to the old people of Soweto.
The 93-year-old ANC stalwart visited the Soweto Home for the Aged on the 13th of June where he also handed over 100 blankets in donation.
With temperatures plummeting badly at night, the old people certainly appreciates Mlangeni's kind contribution.
#ThumaMina is president Cyril Ramaphosa's call to action addressed to all South Africans. The president wants everyone to make a contribution to those in need.
As is tradition in this modern age, South Africans took to social media to thank the ANC and Mlangeni for their good deed.
However, other tweeps couldn't help but remember the COPE's own somewhat disastrous charity donation recently:
These tweets, of course, refer to the soccer balls that COPE leader Mosiuoa Lekota donated to the Computer Stars Football Club on the 12th of June.
Briefly.co.za reported that the Congress of the People donated three soccer balls to a local children's club on Tuesday, but South Africans were not impressed.
Here people took to social media as well to discuss the donation that they felt was not good enough.
COPE responded on their Facebook page that they were not ashamed of their donation, but, in fact, proud.
They also promised to donate a soccer kit to the club.
