A bit of news

Here's a slice of the news from Mthatha:

A POVERTY-stricken mother who did not have money to give her daughter a dignified funeral was stopped by neighbours from burying her in her Mthatha yard .

The grieving mother, Nomahomba Matsambu-Gasa, 54, could not afford the cost of giving her 30-year-old daughter, Nomonde Matsambu, a proper funeral.

After her death, the family resolved to bury her themselves, wrapped in a worn blanket.

The neighbourhoods referenced are as poor as Itipini... and don't have a Community Project serving them. It makes Itipini seem quite well-off by comparison.
