Sibongile Radebe was shocked to discover that her mother had been move from her old age home to another one in Sebokeng, the Vaal.
She had been moved to zone 14 in February and was now living in Vukuzenzele Old Age Home. She demanded that his mother be moved back within a month.
The 43-year-old says that the conditions that her mother has to live under are awful.
“The elderly folks are not given toiletries or proper food,” she said.
A staff member said that he started working at the old age home to help people but now feels that the opposite is being done.
Sibongile claims that her mother is sent for check ups on an empty stomach and that some of the elderly sleep on the floor.
“I told management about the lack of food, toiletries and beds but no one seems to be doing anything about it,” claimed the worker.
The manager, Puleng Jandela, rubbished these claims and said that everyone is well taken care of at the home.
Thebe Mohatle, Gauteng Social Development spokesman, says that the department does not know about the facility.
