MEDIA STATEMENT

NEWCASTLE MUNICIPALITY MAYOR CLLR. DR NTUTHUKO MAHLABA FULFILS HIS JUNE 16 PROMISE, AND TOGETHER WITH THE NEWCASTLE CHINESE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE DONATE THOUSANDS OF PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT TO THE MADADENI HOSPITAL.

31 JULY 2020

Newcastle: Today I’m pleased to announce that I’ve finally fulfilled my June 16 promise to the Hadebe family. Today we also empowered the girl child and restored the dignity of the girl child in our community.

Last month during our food distribution campaign we came across the Hadebe family at D 96 District Road. I was moved and taken aback by the unbearable and appalling conditions confronting this family, who share a two bedroom house among eighteen family members, mostly consisting of very young children. The majority of this household is young girls and young women. Despite our efforts of purchasing and giving food parcels to them, we couldn’t sit back and watch them languish.

On June 16, during the commemoration of the selflessness and militancy of the youth of 1976, I saw it befitting to return to this family, spend the day and share lunch with them. I also saw the immediate need to purchase warm winter clothes for the kids. I also committed to use my personal funds to build a home for the Hadebe family and beguiled close friends to lend a hand where they could. During the season of colds and flu, the children were given full access to my medical practice for routine check-ups.

Today we officially handed over a six bedroom house to the Hadebe family, which includes a rondavel. Our efforts to assist the family are also in line with the celebration of Women's Month in August, as we celebrate the strength and resilience of our women in society. I sincerely hope that this house will provide solace and fortitude for the Hadebe family. I also hope that it will be a fortress for them in times of distress. We’ve demolished any remnants of their old house, as they embrace a new lifestyle. I’ve encouraged the girls to apply for the municipal post matric scholarship, so that they can further their education. We’ve also provided much needed food relief to the family which will last them for four months.

I reiterate that the culture and tradition of our wonderful community of Newcastle is to assist the struggling neighbour until they can help themselves. We’ve lived with this mantra and ethos for many years. The spirit of Ubuntu which was bestowed upon us by the late President Nelson Mandela continues to flourish. The impeccable work done by NGOs and businesses in this community, during the Covid-19 lockdown period is incredible, and for that I applaud you all.

Today, the Newcastle Municipality together with the Newcastle Chinese Chamber of Commerce also donated thousands of Personal Protective Equipment to the Madadeni Hospital, in a bid to assist doctors and nurses as they tackle Coronavirus. Recent statistics announced by the premier of KwaZulu-Natal have indicated that the Newcastle Local Municipality is fast becoming a Covid-19 hotspot. Recent Covid-19 figures in Newcastle are worrisome and concerning.

I’ve also recently come out of self-isolation, after being diagnosed with Covid-19. I remain hopeful and optimistic that the donation of PPEs will rapidly reduce new infections and assist our frontline staffers.

Issued by Newcastle Municipality Mayor Cllr. Dr Ntuthuko Mahlaba.
