- On Friday, former SA president Jacob Zuma handed over a new three-bedroom house to a struggle veteran
- Amos Ndwalane, who was nearly executed in 1990, was let out of the hospital to receive his new home
- The house was built after Zuma approached the KwaZulu-Natal health MEC to ask for help in making struggle veterans' lives a bit easier
On 3 May, Msholozi and the KwaZulu-Natal health MEC, Sibongiseni Dhlomo, handed over a three-bedroom house to struggle veteran Amos Ndwalane.
Ndwalane was discharged from the hospital on Friday for two hours to receive his new home, which was built by Durban company Enza Construction.
According to Times LIVE, Zuma previously approached the KZN health MEC to ask for his help in helping struggle veterans who found it hard to make ends meet.
Dhlomo quickly secured a donor to help him build Ndwalane a decent home since he was staying in a dilapidated house with a leaky roof.
Briefly.co.za learned Ndwalane was hospitalised last week because of health issues concerning his lungs.
The 70-year-old was an iconic struggle hero who spent eight years behind bars at the Pretoria Central Prison, where he awaited a death sentence.
However, in 1990, a week before he was set to be hanged, the ban on the ANC was lifted.
