VP hands over house

 The Vice President (VP), Dr Ponatshego Kedikilwe has commended Fire Risk Control and Security Systems Company for extending a helping hand to Mr Gideon Kheu of Timbi Ward in Tutume.

Speaking at the handover of the P275 000 house to Mr Kheu, Dr Kedikilwe said the gesture by the company supported the high moral principle of dignity cherished by the nation.  

The VP, who is also MP for Mmadinare, said the company’s spirit of compassion will not only ignite a new and better life for Mr Kheu, but will also give him courage and hope.

Dr Kedikilwe also described the company’s gesture as a positive contribution towards the Presidential Housing Appeal, which not only contributed to the President’s Road map, but was also in line with the National Vision pillar of a Compassionate, Just and Caring nation.

He noted that as part of the Presidential Housing Appeal, 535 houses have been pledged, of which 175 have been completed while the construction of 70 are ongoing.

Dr Kedikilwe called on every individual and the business community to have a vision of assisting one another in order to augment the government’s efforts to respond to the growing needs of the communities. 

He said by doing so, they will be strengthening the spirit of Botho and compassion which are deep-rooted in the society.

The company’s Managing Director, Ms Game Kalaben-Mbaakanyi commended the President for his road map particularly Dignity, saying once inculcated, it makes one appreciate the value of a human being.

She said her company built the house because it was inspired by the Presidential Road Map and above all, by a Bible verse that stated faith without works was dead.

Ms Kalaben-Mbaakanyi thanked those who supported the company both financially and with guidance. The Former First Lady, Ms Barbara Mogae donated P10 000 towards the electrification of the house.

Tutume sub-district Chairperson, Councillor Phillip Makale, who donated a cow to Mr Kheu, applauded the company, noting that in most cases people expected the government alone to provide for the disadvantaged members of the community. 

Gideon’s uncle, Mr James Kheu expressed gratitude to all those who donated, and informed the gathering that Gideon was a mentally challenged orphan and that he had a mentally challenged sister. Both of them live with their grandmother. ENDS
