Briefly.co.za reported on the heart-warming story of an 83-year-old woman who received the title deed to her own home recently.
We’re proud to report that another deserving gogo has been richly rewarded for her patience after waiting nearly 100 years.
Koko Elizabeth Kekana’s life-long wait was finally over as she received the keys to her own home at the ripe old age of 97.
Businessman and philanthropist Collen Mashawana assisted to turn Kekana’s dream into a reality and he was on hand to give her the keys.
Understandably, Kekana felt a bit overwhelmed and became emotional.
Mashawana took to Facebook to share the great news and his post revealed that Kekana lived in a dilapidated shack for all of her life.
Kekana can now enjoy her brand new home, which has running water, an inside toilet and electricity.
Anna Mini Seoka commented, “May God elevate and bless you Mr Mashawana, on behalf of the Kekana family we say thank you and continue doing the amazing work you are doing. Many many returns Thank you.”
Nathy Masekwameng added, “Keep it brother. You're doing a great job. Let God continue to shower his blessings to you and your family.”
