Cecelia Mathebula and her kids officially received their brand new, three bedroom house last week Thursday, and she could not be happier.

According to The Citizen, Mathebula lived with her children in a one bedroom home, which was barely standing.

The horrific condition of the home touched the heart of a local religious leader, Pastor Nkuna, who built her a new one bedroom house.

However, Mathebula's story struck a chord with traffic officers, Selaelo Malatjie and Baloyi, who saw she needed a bigger home to accommodate her and her kids.
