Feeling great for staying in shack

Community Alert/ Mathapelo Thobejane/Limpopo province/ 17 November 2016


Life is hard in the community of Grobblesdaal in Limpopo province.  During this rainy season it becomes worse.  We had some time to go for a walk while attending the climate change meeting in that area with my fellow monitors.  We had an opportunity to interview the couple which is staying in a shack next to the road selling grapes. According to them, they have been staying there for a long time and feel great for staying there with their children in the shark; they walk to the bush for collecting hood and water. It is painful to see people suffering and struggling to have access to their constitutional right like  shelter and water .it  is so painful because  people  seems to be happy about  the situation.
