Life has been difficult for 80-year-old gogo Mahlangu and her 20-year-old unemployed son, but things are looking up. They will soon move into the gogo's new home as a R11-million housing project builds home for those in need.
Thanks to the R11-million housing project that was launched by Mpumalanga Human Settlements MEC, Norah Mahlangu, an 80-year-old gogo will finally have herself a home.
Gogo Mahlangu was overjoyed when builders arrived at her shack in Kwaggafontein, Mpumalanga, to lay the foundation for her new 5-roomed RDP.
The Daily Sun reports the home will have 2 bedrooms, a kitchen, bathroom and sitting room.
Gogo Mahlangu is feeling very relieved that she will no longer have to worry about cold weather or rain.
"I’m very happy to see my house finally being built. My life will change for the better. There will be enough space for me and my grandson to share. Rain and cold will no longer be a problem."
Briefly.co.za gathered that the gogo's home is one of 100 that will be developed in the area for needy residents - a project that will improve many people's lives.
