Reality television star Shauwn Mkhize, also known as MaMkhize, has vowed to assist some of the families displaced by the KZN floods.
Shauwn Mkhize announced that she plans to build 20 four-roomed houses as a way of helping the victims.
According to City Press, the flamboyant businesswoman said she felt compelled to assist not only because she comes from KZN but because she is a mother and a family person. She said:

“I don’t know who will benefit because it is not my call. I have asked the municipality to identify about 20 families from the affected communities."
