The SAPS and the Provincial Government have been acting on their social responsibility and gave a family of five a free house in Motherwell.
The house situated in Motherwell has three bedrooms and fully furnished.
“The family headed a 79-year-old Gogo (grandmother), her daughter and five grandchildren aged between six and 16, have been living in a one-room shack. ”
The Motherwell Social Crime Prevention Unit were carrying out their community engagements in the area when they discovered their previous shack posed health risks.
The National Commissioner said “In the SAPS we have Social Crime Prevention which is responsible for identifying and eradicating root causes of crime. Gogo and her grandchildren fall within the category of vulnerable people. Their previous living conditions made them more vulnerable to being victims of crime but with this new house, they are now safe and secure,”
The minister released a statement saying that there are a lot of people living in South Africa that are too struggling with day to day living, however, on this occasion, God had chosen the grandmother.
