Businessman Mr. Linda Twala of Twala Ama Afrika is no stranger to opening his heart to the less fortunate. This good Samaritan has been helping people for the past 52 years and the people of Kaalfontein witnessed his kindness when his truck delivered free maize meal bags for struggling families.
“In Ivory Park I have a place where I am looking after the elderly and disabled persons. Not only because of this COVID-19. It is something I have been doing for the past 52 years,” he tells The Olifants News.
He says he is disappointed to see people living under dire conditions. “I so wish that we bring some of the parliamentarians here.
They must see the living conditions in our country,” he says.
He is one of the leaders who campaigned for free bags of maize meal on behalf of the community.
The maizemeal that you see today I know that is not enough. But we want to make sure that our people have something. We distributed 1000s of bags of maize meal. We thank our donors and everybody who is involved in what we do.
“This is not the government, it’s things that we can donate. I had them in our truck. All people here are my people regardless of what political party they belong to. I was born to serve and not to discriminate against people,” Twala said.
Rose, a resident from Tswelopele says most people didn’t get anything. “They came here to register people, but only a few people got the maize meal.”
