The elderly and young women of Msukaligwa were honoured after the recent spate of killings and attacks on the elderly, people with disabilities, women and children.

A birthday song was sung and cake presented to Martha Mthethwa and Nelly Mabuza who turned 99 and 97 respectively.

“We must take care of our elderly, as they have paved a way for us. They are wise and fought for our freedom,” said Ms Mashiane.

Executive Mayor of Msukaligwa, Mr M.S. Nkosi, was in attendance, wishing the elderly well and a long life.
